Toronto: “The Great Comet” extended to February 18 and “L’Amour telle une cathédrale ensevelie” venue changed

Monday, January 22, 2024

Crow’s Theatre is ecstatic to announce another extension week for NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812, now on stage until February 18. Unprecedented demand for “musical theatre at its best” (Toronto Star), has THE GREAT COMET now running for eleven weeks at Streetcar Crowsnest.

Advance buzz for the French-Haitian creation L'AMOUR TELLE UNE CATHÉDRALE ENSEVELIE, which visits Vancouver’s PuSH Festival and Winnipeg’s Théâtre Cercle Molière before arriving in Toronto, has prompted a move to the Fleck Dance Theatre at Harbourfront Centre to accommodate the incredible amount of interest in the show. The performance schedule will remain the same for Théâtre français de Toronto’s presentation, in association with Crow’s Theatre, of the NOUS Théâtre production with four shows only performed in French and Creole with English surtitles.

In this deeply personal story, Haitian, avant-garde, theatrical auteur Guy Régis Jr tells the tale of a son who journeys across the ocean to reunite with his mother in Canada. The haunting and spirited melodies in this intimate opera-theatre-dance-concert hybrid reveals the emotional impact of leaving, yearning, mourning, and hoping.
