THE BOY FRIEND will replace the previously announced HELLO, DOLLY!, whose schedule change means the show can no longer play in Toronto.
DAY 1: APRIL 25, 2020
Two fantastic shows, one fabulous weekend! Hamilton is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, Hamilton is the story of America then, as told by America now. Hamilton’s creative team previously collaborated on the 2008 Tony® Award Winning Best Musical in the Heights. Accommodations tonight will be at the Novotel Toronto Vaughan, located adjacent to the Vaughan Mills Mall. It features an indoor salt-water pool, fitness centre, and sophisticated Trio Restaurant & Lounge.
DAY 2: APRIL 26, 2020
The morning will be free to enjoy at your leisure before the matinee performance of The Boy Friend. Sandy Wilson's all-singing, all-dancing love letter to 1920s musical comedies returns for the first major London revival in over 10 years. Set in Madame Dubonnet's finishing school in the south of France, these perfect young ladies burst into song at the least provocation, and forbidden boy friends are forever popping through the French windows to sing and dance with them. Since its premiere in 1953, this light-hearted soufflé of a show has delighted audiences worldwide and has become one of the most well-loved British musicals of all time. “This is two-and-a-half hours of glorious, wall-to-wall summer sunshine.”-The Daily Mail (B)
