The Dora Mavor Moore Awards, Toronto’s version of Broadway’s Tony Awards, are doing something a little different this year. Inspired by the success of the past few years’ after-party on Front Street following the ceremonies, they’ve moved the whole kit and caboodle outdoors, putting the red carpet, awards, and after-party outside by the water at the Harbourfront Centre. As with previous years, tickets are available for the VIP reception and the awards themselves—and for those on a budget who want to schmooze with Toronto theatre stars, a $15 after-party ticket will get you into the late-night street carnival celebrations.

Party Hard Hard Party – Dora Edition

Jan Caruana.

Jan Caruana.

  • Comedy Bar (945 Bloor Street West)
  • 9 p.m.

The madmen behind Party Hard Hard Party—RN & Cawls (Rob Norman and Adam Cawley) and 2-Man No-Show (Ken Hall and Isaac Kessler)—are counter-programming their monthly improv comedy showcase against the Dora Mavor Moore Awards, the city’s annual celebration of Toronto’s best theatre (and a few things comedic, too). The Doras will wrap up the night with a massive street party along the waterfront, whereas the PHHP boys are keeping it real in an (actual) underground bar venue. At least one Dora nominee is on the bill: Jan Caruana, nominated for her Second City mainstage performance. And she’s not the only recent award nominee—the men hosting have multiple Canadian Comedy Award nominations.
