Comment on Gracing the Stage(s) (UPDATED with photo links!) by Gracing The Stage » No Update on May 1st… but here's some A/V bribes (and resource links) http://www.gracingthestage.ca/?p=1148&cpage=1#comment-2988 Gracing The Stage » No Update on May 1st… but here's some A/V bribes (and resource links) Wed, 28 Apr 2010 01:27:55 +0000 http://www.gracingthestage.ca/?p=1148#comment-2988 [...] - In Theatre, there’s no Toronto specific web site that does theatre listings, though the livewithculture.ca site, run by the City of Toronto, is a decent resource for the arts in general in the city.

The best on-line theatre resource in town, in my opinion,  is Johnny Walker’s “Drama Club” over on Torontoist (and I’d have said that even before he did that nifty piece about Gracing the Stage and the website launch shows).
