Mirvish opens ticket sales for pandemic-delayed Toronto run of musical 'Room'

·1 min read

TORONTO — Mirvish Productions is welcoming audiences back to "Room," nearly two years after pandemic-related delays.

Tickets go on sale on Saturday for the Toronto run, set for the CAA Theatre from Feb. 6 to April 10.

Before that, London's Grand Theatre, which co-produced the play with Mirvish and the U.K.'s Covent Garden Productions, will host the show Jan. 11 to 29.

The much-anticipated musical is based on Canadian author Emma Donoghue's 2010 novel. Adapted to include songs, "Room" stars Stratford Festival regular Alexis Gordon as a mother being held captive in a storage shed with her son.

Mirvish says its theatres are operating at full capacity, and all audience members must be fully vaccinated and wear masks during the show.

The play was slated to make its North American premiere at the Grand in March 2020 when production was shut down on the eve of its three-week run.
