It can be expensive to travel to other countries. I just booked a few flights, and my wallet is crying. But wouldn’t you rather save the emotions for yourself, and still get to experience the ideas, motivations and messages of other cultures, right here in Toronto?

Enter Progress. You can check out a more extensive discussion about exactly what it is by clicking here – but all you need to know is that a number of extremely innovative international shows are coming to Toronto this week, and you can see all of them for very, very cheap – some shows are even free! All it takes is a short trip to The Theatre Centre out on Queen West, where all of the shows are playing. But act fast – performances start on Wednesday, run until February 15th, and tickets are going fast!

All in all, you really won’t want to miss Progress!

So check out their website for scheduling and ticket info, and go see some Cheap Theatre!

Live Shows For $25 or Less

Some people don’t like going to theatre because it’s more expensive than the movies. Or so they think. Pshaw, I say to that. Tickets to all of these shows are available for $25 or less. So would you rather go see some big, very loud IMAX movie (that your would probably enjoy more at home, where you can talk over it) or some real, live theatre? I mean, look at how many cool shows there are this week!
