Good Monday morning! I hope you all had a great weekend despite the awful weather, but at least there was a lot of indoor activities going on around the city. I got the opportunity to take in the Tea and Chocolate festival, and it was a fantastic treat!
This upcoming week has a lot of live entertainment in various forms.
First, we have hockey back in town this week after a week away for both of our teams. The Senators have two home games this week; Thursday night, the LA Kings are in town, and Saturday the Carolina Hurricanes are visiting. For junior hockey, the Ottawa 67’s are playing host to the Oshawa Generals on Friday night at TD Place.
Second, for you theatre fans, BANG BANG continues right up until November 10th at the Great Canadian Theatre Company. At the Gladstone this week, Oleanna kicks off a two week run. This latest play by SevenThirty Productions will run daily from this Tuesday until November 16th. Gaslight is continuing its run at Ottawa Little Theatre daily until November 9th. At Kanata Theatre, Operation: Mincemeat opens on November 5th until the 9th, and then again next week from the 12th to 16th.
Finally, there are plenty of other live performances happening this week with a mix of concerts, ice skating, and stand up comedy. On Tuesday, you will find Jade Bird live at the National Arts Centre, Thursday Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir host the Rock the Rink event at TD place with special guests Elvis Stojko and Patrick Chan. Also Thursday, at Meridian Theatres @Centrepointe, the hilarious Howie Mandel is here for one night only. Friday night, you can see the talented Dwayne Gretzky (Band) at Bronson Centre. Harry’s Musical World is playing at Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe Friday night and Saturday afternoon, Tara Shannon is performing at the NAC Saturday night, and finally, Taylor Shaw is at the Algonquin Commons Theatre, also on Saturday night. Wow.
