Streetcar Scoop: October Edition

With October officially here, it’s time to bid farewell to summer for good and look forward to all that is fall: the changing leaves, Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, and, of course, a new season of entertainment. As you line up your listings of new Netflix releases, don’t forget to check out what’s on at your local theatre, too! Immerse yourself in a full evening of the best entertainment and dining Toronto’s east has to offer.

Crow’s Theatre warms up their 2018-2019 season with The Wolves by Sarah DeLappe. Presented in partnership with The Howland Company, The Wolves tells a tale of nine young girls in high school during their daily afternoon soccer warmups. This provocative play captures the profound beauty of adolescence and paints a portrait of nuanced young women navigating soccer, their lives, and a growing understanding of a complicated world.

The Wolves first premiered in September 2016 at The Duke on 42nd Street in New York to universal critical acclaim. The show eventually transferred to Lincoln Centre in November of 2017. A finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the production also won an Obie Ensemble Award, a special Drama Desk Award for its acting ensemble, and was nominated for Lucille Lortel and Drama League awards for Best Play, as well as for the Outer Critics’ Circle John Gassner Award for Outstanding New American Play.

See the Toronto premiere of The Wolves on stage at Streetcar Crowsnest, October 9 to 27, 2018.

If you’re ready to make a night of it, then get your tickets and be sure to reserve at Gare De L’Est for dinner. The Brasserie nested beside Crow’s features a special theatre prix fixe menu. Choose three plates from a selection of entrées, mains, and desserts. Our chef offers up a selection of comfort dishes in an atmosphere that’s fit for the artful occasion.
