This Valentine’s Day weekend Crow’s Theatre and The Howland Company present:
This winter, Crow’s Theatre and The Howland Company join forces again to bring you laughter and connection with a new live-streamed adaptation of the "Best of Toronto Fringe" winning hit, Entrances and Exits. Created by Ruth Goodwin (The Howland Company, Private Eyes) and Liz Johnston (The Second City, Bad Dog) and co-directed for the screen by Paolo Santalucia (The Howland Company, Soulpepper Theatre) and Ruth Goodwin, this Canadian Comedy Award nominated show takes its inspiration from classic farces you already love as it follows a cast of incredible improvisers over the course of 60 minutes as they try to salvage a party gone awry. Featuring guest performances from everyone’s favorite Canadian improviser, Colin Mochrie (Whose Line is it Anyway?).
Some of the best actors and improvisers in the city make this made-up two-act farce look easy. - NOW MAGAZINE
Entrances and Exits first premiered in 2018 at the Toronto Fringe Festival, where it became an instant sold-out hit, winning "Best of Fringe". The show was subsequently remounted in 2019 at Bad Dog Theatre and was invited to Toronto’s Sketch Fest, Canada’s premiere comedy showcase, before garnering a Canadian Comedy Award nomination.
...But a lot has changed since 2018.
Now, as the theatres remain closed and social distancing lockdowns remain in effect, we are adapting this joyful, unscripted comedy from stage to screen for an innovative digital performance, broadcast live from the Guloien Theatre at Streetcar Crowsnest . Tickets go on sale January 5th, 2021 with live-streaming performance dates from February 12th to February 14th, 2021.February 14th will host a special Dinner And A Show edition of Entrances and Exits.
Once again, we have partnered up with Gare de l’Est to pair a gourmet Valentine’s Day meal for two and sommelier-selected wine with the show, all designed to bring home the feeling of a great night out. GDL Chef John Sinopoli creates a romantic Valentine's Day menu to pair with Entrances and Exits and make the night an unmissable gastronomic and artistic experience.
The ready to finish meals are delivered to homes directly by GDL, along with video instructions from the chef on how to complete and plate the dishes.Valentine's Day Menu
