Tony Danza, The Book of Mormon and Sister Act among the absolutely mainstream crowd-pleasers for Mirvish’s 2012-13 season

Tony Danza, The Book of Mormon and Sister Act among the absolutely mainstream crowd-pleasers for Mirvish’s 2012-13 season

Mirvish announced its 2012-13 season this morning, and the theatre company has noticeably taken few risks, appealing instead to people (like us, sometimes) who like staged productions of popular movies such as the inimitable Sister Act, La Cage aux folles (The Birdcage) and Flashdance (co-written by former Toronto Life editor Tom Hedley)—almost like someone making a board game into a motion picture. Despite the mainstream season, we’re excited to check out the hit Broadway musical comedy Book of Mormon by South Park creators Matt Parker and Trey Stone (hello!), and for fans of Tony Danza (presumably there are some of you still kicking around—he did have his own talk show, after all), he’s slated to perform in Honeymoon in Vegas as Tommy Korman.
