Join us for The GIGLI Concert, an Irish theatrical masterpiece. The play will be presented by the Soulpepper Theatre Company in Toronto's historic Distillery District.
Our group will save up to 70 per cent off regular ticket prices by purchasing rush tickets, which are usually best available on Mondays.
An Irish building contractor has an unlikely but irresistible desire: to sing like the great Italian tenor Beniamino Gigli. He retains the services of self-styled "Dynamatologist" JPW King to achieve his impossible dream. Hardly a voice teacher and certainly unfit to be a life coach, the hard drinking King finds himself grudgingly taking on the project, intrigued by this mysterious stranger. Written by Irish playwright Tom Murphy who is considered to be Ireland's greatest living playwrights. More information

TO PURCHASE RUSH TICKETS
RUSH TICKETS: Get into the box office lineup for rush tickets on the day of performance. Consecutive numbers for rush tickets will be given out by the box office beginning at 6:30 p.m. The lower your number (number 1 is best!), the better your chances of getting a rush ticket. At 7:00 p.m. the box office will start calling out the numbers in the order they were given out until all rush tickets are sold. To get a low number, it's best to line up early at the box office -- by 5:45 p.m. if possible. Peter will check on availability of rush tickets closer to the performance date.
Members are responsible for purchasing their own tickets directly from the theatre.
