The Ongoing Performance List

In September of last year, I began a post called The Ongoing Reading List in which I am recording all the plays, books, memoirs, etc. that I have read from September 2012 to September 2013.  I decided to nuance the year's worth of reading to focus on plays, because I want to have a career in the theatre.

I've decided to start this list to record all the live theatre performances I have seen from January 2013 to December 2013.  The list likely won't end up being too long, as I am really trying hard to save and pay off my student loans quickly (which means my entertainment dollars will likely become axed).  However, there is a lot of great theatre happening and I want to be able to reflect at the end of the year on the productions I have seen.

So far I have seen:
1) Kim's Convenience (Grand Theatre)
2) Bat Boy: The Musical (MTP, McManus Studio)
3) Edward II (The Arts Project, by Empty Space Productions)
4) Shakespeare's Nigga (Obsidian Theatre, Theatre Passe Muraille)
5) Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (Soulpepper)
6) Zorba, a Musical (MTP, Palace Theatre)
7) Dance Legends (Grand Theatre)
8) The Taming of the Shrew (McManus Studio)
9) When It Rains (2b Theatre, McManus Studio)
10) Show Must Go On (London Fringe)
11) Til Death: the Six Wives of Henry VIII (Monster Theatre, London Fringe)
