Music Theatre Spotlight

Music Theatre Spotlight this little-known show by Oscar Telgman is a patriotic visit to tum-of-the-century Kingston. Turning north, we find the Silver Fox Productions presentation of the dance musical Swingstep continuing in residence at the Elgin on Yonge Street to July 1, while Romancin' the One I Love, with Camilla Scott and Brad Aspel, inhabits the Winter Garden directly upstairs from June 9 on. The famous Phantom no longer stalks the sumptuous Pantages, · but from June 6 to 18 Rent, the grunge-flavoured take on La Boheme, returns to Toronto with its ragtag collection of downand-out urban survivors. Other music theatre productions of note include The Crimson Veil (June 4 to 9 at Factory Theatre), yet another new musical by the prolific Allen Cole, this one based on Italian folktales; and an intrigu- . ing production of Beckett's Krapp's La~t Tape and continued from page 26 Strindberg's The Stranger by Tryptych Productions that promises to alternate the original versions with their operatic adaptations on different days (June 10 and 11 at the Music Gallery), ·Finally, for the many among us who enjoy community theatre, the 10th season of Opera Buffa includes a crowded week of productions: The Marriage of Figaro (June 21 & 22), The Pirates of Penzance (June 23 to 25) and 'The Reluctant Dragon/I Need A Vacation (June 24) at the Fairview Library Theatre; Act II Studio premieres a look at historical songs and humour in Our Canadian Century (Robert Gill Theatre, June 1 to 11), and staff of the Toronto Catholic District School portray the Zangler Follies showgirls and the Deadrock cowpokes in the lovable Crazy For You (June 9, 10, 15, 16 and 17 at Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts). feature.
