Crow's Theatre and French brasserie Gare de L'est are collaborating to bring a social experience to Torontonians who miss the city's art and restaurant scenes. This is a unique dine-at-home experience that allows an exclusive streaming and a behind-the-scenes look at new works commissioned by Crow’s Theatre, as well as a lovely three-course dinner for two delivered to your home. The meal comes with simple instructions for finishing and plating dinners. The dinners are paired with sommelier-selected wine. It is a unique experience that is meant to bring the experience of a night out into the home.
Crow’s Theatre opened its doors four years ago in Toronto's east end neighbourhood Leslieville and, quickly became a city favourite for a night out. Dinner and a Show is the city’s first online theatrical experience. With so many businesses shut down and live entertainment completely halted, this innovative experience is just what Toronto needs.
The Crow’s Theatre’s Artistic and Executive Directors, Chris Abraham and Sherrie Johnson, approached Gare de L’est’s founders Erik Joyal and John Sinopoli with the idea for Dinner and a Show. They had been inspired by Erik and John’s efforts to support the restaurant industry through savehospitality.ca.
Currently, they have their upcoming shows listed on their website and tickets can be purchased online on the Crow's Theatre's website. Those interested should act fast because tickets sell out quickly. Dinner and a Show has already sold out for their May 20th production and due to popular demand, 20 more spots were added. Each show is different and the menu for each available date varies.
We love to see all the collaboration and creativity during this time. While the city, the country and the world slowly waits to see things return to normal, experiences like this keep morale alive and well.
