There’s nothing quite like catching a live show! Below we’ve got some persuasive reasons to increase your future theatre-going, and you can get a great head start by snapping up seats to the exciting shows coming to Canadian Stage in 2018. There’s the world premiere of Declarations, the bold new voice of The Overcoat: A Musical Tailoring, and the Canadian premiere of the Tony Award-winning drama The Humans. This Boxing Day, check out our 24 hour sale and save up to 50% on seats to these three shows.  Theatre is now more affordable than ever with TodayTix! Here are some of the reasons we are making “see more theatre” our top New Year’s Resolution, and think you should too.


1. You’ll become the most cultured of your friends.

The Overcoat: A Musical Tailoring

While your friends may be resolving to lose 10 pounds or to spend less time on the internet, you’ll be saying things like,“Did you know The Overcoat is based on Nikolai Gogol’s beloved 19th century story?” or inquiring as to whether they’d like to join you to see 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist  The Humans at Canadian Stage.


2. You’ll get a good work out.


Well, emotionally that is. A moving production can easily get those tear ducts working on overdrive, like the lyrical Declarations (above), a joyful ode to what makes up a life.  And if you want to get some abs?  See a good comedy!


3. You’ll expand your dinner conversation.

August: Osage County

Great live productions bring together their audiences and inspire dialogue about the piece. Get closer to your friends and family by talking about costumes you liked and set pieces you hated, or by getting into a bigger conversation about what the playwright was trying to convey.


4. You’ll get a well-deserved treat.

The Humans

Theatre can often seem like a luxury, but after a crazy 2017, you deserve it! With TodayTix, theatre is now even more affordable. So don’t miss out on great deals on award-winning drama, like Tony Award-winner The Humans.


5. You can be one of the first to see a brand new show.

The thrill of being one of the first people to see a new show is one of a kind. You won’t want to miss the World Premiere of Declarations, a new play from acclaimed playwright-director Jordan Tannahill. It opens January 23rd at Canadian Stage.


6. You can also see a Canadian Premiere.

It’s always nice when an internationally celebrated show comes to town. You can see Stephen Karam’s highly acclaimed masterpiece The Humans at Canadian Stage in February. It was the winner of four 2016 Tony Awards!


7. Or you can experience a spectacular new musical production.

The Overcoat: A Musical Tailoring, will arrive at Canadian Stage at the end of March, giving the darkly funny story by Gogol a bold new operatic voice and vision. With a symphony of voices and movement, comedy and tragedy, The Overcoat: A Musical Tailoring has all the makings of great musical theatre.


8. After all, all the world’s a stage.

Resolving to see more theatre in 2018 is the gift that keeps on giving… especially when you can save up to 50% on tickets!
