Although alcohol is most certainly the linchpin of a Queen’s Players stage production, there’s always a certain intrigue as to which direction the performance could take: There’s the expletive heavy, smutastic performance where everyone onstage has a that warm liquored-up glow, or there’s the embarrassing, you-should-go-home drunkies on stage. Either way, it’s always been entertaining.
Starting this weekend, the production of The Apprentice Bride looks to impress the less forgiving yet still adoring Toronto audience. Running until June 11, catch the interactive booze theatre where everyone but the bartender gets drunk at the Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick). Buy ticks here, with cash going to Stephen Lewis.
