  • 8 p.m.

There are musical improv shows from time to time in Toronto, and usually they involve a musical accompanist on a keyboard. But an orchestra? Golden Ages promises “a musical that has never been seen before, and will never be seen again.” Inspired by Broadway classics like Pal Joey and Oklahoma, this one-night-only affair will feature a half-dozen musicians and a cast of eight singing improvisers, including Ashley Botting, Kris Siddiqi, and Kirsten Rasmussen.
