In this modern masterwork -- critically praised as a unique mix of Oscar Wilde and Bertolt Brecht -- the great Irish writer George Bernard Shaw pits a military industrialist against his crusading daughter. She's a Salvation Army major; he's an arms manufacturer and whiskey distiller -- on certain issues, they could not disagree more. But when he begins donating money to her organization, matters come to a head as the characters grapple with questions of business, faith, family and philanthropy. After 16 years, A.C.T. brings Shaw back to the stage with this co-production with Theatre Calgary, one of A.C.T.'s favorite Canadian collaborators, featuring an international cast of Canadian and American actors.

It is a captivating moonlit romance: TheatreWorks, the Peninsula's professional theatre company, has waltzed its hit production of Stephen Sondheim's enchanting musical A Little Night Music to the Post Street Theatre.
An enchanting waltz by moonlight, Sondheim's most beautiful musical celebrates every possible nuance of love, from the tender blossoming of inexperience to the startled rekindling of long-forgotten passion.
Seductively set amidst the art nouveau swirls of the belle époque, its compassion, humor, and heart sweep lover and loner alike into a daring, innovative evening of glorious music and sensuous romance.
