A founding member of the folk rock band Great Big Sea is set enter the Toronto theatre scene this year with two original shows.
Bob Hallett is behind Terra Bruce Productions, a musical theatre company the plans to grow more permanent roots in Toronto.
The first show “Let’s Dance, the Musical” is set to music from the early ’60s and will play at the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre next month.
“The Wild Rovers,” inspired by the Irish Rovers who got their start in Toronto in the ’60s will debut in Toronto in the fall.
The company bought the Regent Theatre in Toronto and the Majestic Theatre in downtown St. John’s, Newfoundland and renovations are ongoing.
