Baryshnikov show hits TO in January
TORONTO — A solo theatrical performance featuring ballet star Mikhail Baryshnikov will make its Canadian première in Toronto in January.
Producers say Brodsky/ Baryshnikov will run Jan. 24-27 at the Winter Garden Theatre.
The stage show is based on the poems of Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky, Baryshnikov’s longtime friend.
Baryshnikov recites the poems in Russian, Brodsky’s mother tongue.
Alvis Herman directs the show, which premièred in Riga, Latvia in October 2015.
