Trying to remember who was in that show you loved? This new website is for you

Theatre Museum Canada is delighted to present a new website project recording the production history and performance dates of Toronto’s professional theatre: The Toronto Theatre Database Project (www.ttdb.ca).

The preview launch includes over 400 plays produced in the last five years. This is a work in progress. We plan to include plays from past decades, and from across the country.

King Blue sets the stage for Theatre Museum Canada

When King Blue by Greenland Condominiums takes its place in the Toronto skyline at the corner of King Street West and Blue Jays Way, it will house a unique component to which no other condo development in the country can lay claim — it will be home to Theatre Museum Canada.
