rePLAY: Symphony of Heroes

Brought to vibrant life by a full orchestra and chorus, “rePLAY: Symphony of Heroes” is an exciting new concert coming to the Sony Centre that celebrates the inherent artistic nature of video games and features music depicting memorable moments from some of the most popular and beloved video games of all time.

Developed by the creative team behind “Dear Friends,” “More Friends: Music from Final Fantasy,” and “Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses,” “rePLAY,” is the spiritual successor to one of the most acclaimed concerts to ever hit the stage, “Play! A Video Game Symphony.” The “rePLAY” live concert experience places the beautiful music of games in a whole new context, while striving to the lofty goal of introducing the arts to gamers and games to the world of the arts.

The music serves as a focal point to displaying the incredible worlds that are created for these games, and highlights the art, animation, visual fidelity, and technical feats that make the medium so compelling across the globe. A powerful concert for the entire family, gamer and non-gamer alike, “rePLAY” is an experience that proves to be unforgettable.

The Mountaintop

July 16 – September 7.

A storm rages outside as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr settles into Room 306 at the Lorraine Motel. He is exhausted, having just delivered his powerful “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech about his hopes for the days ahead and the view he has seen of the Promised Land. When room service arrives, he meets a beautiful and slightly mysterious young hotel maid. Through their intimate and ultimately transformative conversation, we hear the hopes and fears of King – both the leader and the man – as he is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy. Critics called it “wondrous, hilarious, and heartbreaking.”

Three seasons ago we presented Suzan-Lori Parks Topdog/Underdog, in collaboration with Toronto’s highly respected Obsidian Theatre. Directed by their Artistic Director Philip Akin, the play moved into Toronto for a winter run where it gained more critical kudos and several awards. I am thrilled to reconnect and start another journey with Obsidian with Katori Hall’s beautiful and important play. – JM.

The Mountaintop is recommended for ages 14+
