Published:

The Neverending Story

Children of the ’80s won’t ever forget the first time they watched the film adaptation of Michael Ende’s novel about a young boy named Bastian and his epic adventure in Fantastica (probably because that huge dragon-who-looks-like-a-dog scared the bejesus out of us.) This staged version  introduces the tale to a new generation.
Young People’s Theatre, 165 Front Street E., 416-862-2222. To March 17.


War Horse

Don’t forget to bring a box of Kleenex to this Tony Award-winning play about a young man’s remarkable journey to find his beloved horse, Joey, who’s been sold and shipped off to war. Are you tearing up already?
Princess of Wales Theatre, 300 King St. W., 416-872-1212. To June 2.


Paprika Festival

Toronto’s only free theatre festival returns to the Tarragon Theatre for its 11th year with new works by emerging and established playwrights.  
Tarragon Theatre, Extra Space, 30 Bridgman Ave, 416-531-1827. March 1 – March 10.


The Lost Sagas of Tjorvi the Flaccid

Double entendre alert! This is a tale about an insecure young Lord named Tjorvi who’s never set sail nor conquered anything.
Unit 102 Studio, 376 Dufferin St. March 1 – March 10.


Can I Really Date a Guy Who Wears a Yarmulke?

Ah yes, the age old question. This romantic comedy tries to answer it by looking at the different perspectives of the younger generation when it comes to religion and tradition in an attempt to bridge the gap in the name of love.
Toronto Centre for the Arts, Studio Theatre, 5040 Yonge St., 416-781-5527. Feb. 29 – March 11.
