Here at The New Classical FM we’ve started to fill out our calendars for the month of February. There are too many amazing concerts and events happening in the Toronto area to list them all, but below are a few that we think you’ll really enjoy!

Come From Away
It’s been called the “edge of the world.” The weather is wild, but the locals never lack for warmth. In Newfoundland, a remote town became the epicenter of a remarkable true story in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, filled with unusual characters, unexpected camaraderie and uncommon generosity. A feel-good and invigorating show!
Written by Tony-nominated Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein and helmed by Tony-winning Best Director, Crhistopher Ashley.
Elgin Theatre (Yonge Street, just north of Queen)

February 6 – 24 at various times
Canadian Stage
Prince Hamlet
Ravi Jain’s remixed, reimagined, and bilingual Prince Hamlet features a cross-cultural, gender-flipped cast, challenging conventional ideas of who gets to tell this story. Struggling with the death of his royal father and his mother’s hasty re-marriage to his uncle — and murderer of the king — Hamlet undertakes the task of avenging his father’s untimely death. Combining spoken word and American Sign Language, this production creates an integrated retelling for both hearing and Deaf audiences.
