Next Stage 2014: The Full Lineup, Reviewed
The Next Stage Theatre Festival is back with a diverse and compelling slate of ten plays, all by artists who’ve previously contributed to the Fringe Festival. While a few of these shows have been produced at the Fringe, a number of them are brand new, and you have until January 19 to check out as many as you can.
Road to Rio
There’s no question about it: we could all benefit from a little heat these days. If you can’t escape to the tropics, come out for the Canadian Opera Company’s free presentation of Road to Rio. Pianist and composer Gordon Sheard will conjure thoughts of warmer climates with the help of his students—the Humber Brazilian Jazz Ensemble.

If your New Year’s resolution was to stop working for other people, or to finally follow through on your great idea for a product or service, listen up! The Toronto Public Library has organized a How to Be an Entrepreneur workshop for people like you who have questions and fears about taking the plunge. Two local business owners will be present to share their own experiences with starting a company and making it successful.
Warming Winter Salads Taster
After the indulgence of the holidays, wouldn’t it be nice to incorporate some healthy foods into your diet? Learn to make four delicious and wholesome dishes at the Warming Winter Salads Taster.

Rice, noodles, quinoa, and more—all in salad form!
