Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes presents an end-of-the-world romance that includes talking dogs and a cross-dressing banker. Warning: despite the usage of puppets, this show is definitely not for children.
Factory Theatre, 125 Bathurst St., 416-504-9971. Jan. 24 - Feb. 26.


Cruel and Tender

This Martin Crimp play, a modern take on SophoclesTrachiniae, is not only the first play that acclaimed Canadian film director Atom Egoyan has tackled since ‘89, but it’s his first time collaborating onstage with his actress-wife, Arsinée Khanjian.
Bluma Appel Theatre, 27 Front St. E., 416-368-3110. Jan. 26 - Feb. 18.


A Brimful of Asha

Mother-and-son team Asha and Ravi Jain keep it in the family by sharing their story (and the stage) about generational and cultural clash. Bonus: select Sunday performances take place at Dish Cooking Studio, which include a cooking class with Asha and a shared vegetarian meal.
Tarragon Theatre, Extra Extra Space, 30 Bridgman Ave., 416-531-1827. Jan. 26 - Feb. 18.


No Exit

Artists and existentialists alike will have a hankering for this Jean-Paul Sartre play about three deceased characters who are punished by being locked into a room together for eternity. “L’enfer, c’est les autres,” non?
Theatre Passe Muraille, Backspace, 16 Ryerson Ave., 416-504-7529. Jan. 24 - Feb. 4.


Caroline, or Change

This multi-award winning musical (it’s won a Tony, an Olivier, and an Obie, among others) centers on an African-American maid named Caroline and the son of her Jewish employer, who are both struggling with extraordinary life changes.
Berkeley Street Theatre, 26 Berkeley Street, 416-368-3110. Jan. 25 - Feb. 12.
