Plus seven more in­cred­i­ble events this June from Oprah to Eilish

Richmond Hill Post - - CURRENTS -

The Rolling Stones

Al­though it was touch and go for a while, when His Majesty Mick Jag­ger re­leased a Twit­ter video of him­self shak­ing and shim­my­ing like a young man of 65, lo­cal con­cert-go­ers knew the show was on and the leg­endary Rolling Stones would in­deed play their show at Burl’s Creek north of Toronto on June 29. Al­though the band, re­spon­si­ble for a few fa­mil­iar tunes over the years from “Brown Sugar” to “Sat­is­fac­tion,” is re­mark­ably well pre­served, this may be one of the last chances to see one of the great bands in the his­tory of rock ’n’ roll.

Phys­i­cal Think­ing

The ven­er­a­ble Na­tional Bal­let of Canada presents Phys­i­cal Think­ing: Wil­liam Forsythe Pro­gramme with three stun­ning works from the revered Amer­i­can chore­og­ra­pher once called the high priest of post-struc­tural con­tem­po­rary dance. The pro­gram in­cludes The Sec­ond De­tail, an as­ton­ish­ing work that was cre­ated for the Na­tional Bal­let of Canada in 1991,

Ap­prox­i­mate Sonata 2016 and The Ver­tig­i­nous Thrill of Ex­ac­ti­tude. Phys­i­cal Think­ing runs June 1 to 8 at the Four Sea­sons Cen­tre for the Per­form­ing Arts.

Oprah Win­frey

The one-and-only Oprah Win­frey will be sit­ting down with 20,000 friends at the Sco­tia­bank Arena on June 14 for a bit of a gab ses­sion. Win­frey will share per­sonal sto­ries and life les­sons as only she can. Bring tis­sues.

Bil­lie Eilish

Since her de­but in 2016, Bil­lie Eilish has es­tab­lished her­self a le­git force in pop mu­sic with a cer­tain charm­ing edge that al­lows for some cross­over ap­peal. She’s an artist upon whom the mu­sic nerd dad and Tay­lorlov­ing daugh­ter can both agree. Eilish ar­rives in town June 11 to play Bud­weiser Stage in sup­port of her new al­bum When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

The Black Drum

Soulpep­per has part­nered with the Cana­dian Cul­tural So­ci­ety of the Deaf to bring the deaf mu­si­cal The Black Drum to their Young Cen­tre for the Per­form­ing Arts. Writ­ten by deaf play­wright Adam Pot­tle, the signed mu­si­cal “tells the story of a young woman, whose life is up­turned when her tat­toos come alive and pro­pel her on a fan­tas­ti­cal jour­ney in search of her own in­ner mu­sic.” It runs June 15 to 29.

Cir­cus Ses­sions

Toronto con­tem­po­rary cir­cus com­pany Femmes du Feu is bring­ing to­gether in­ter­na­tional artists from the emerg­ing and pro­fes­sional cir­cus com­mu­nity. Over the span of two weeks, at Toronto Cen­tre for the Arts, cir­cus artists will work with men­tors and ex­perts in their field (in­clud­ing Toronto’s Mon­ica Dot­tor and Bahia Wat­son and Michelle Man of Spain/U.K.) on two dif­fer­ent pro­duc­tions that will be show­cased on the week­ends of June 21 to 22 and June 28 to 29.

Adam Sandler

Happy Gil­more has re­turned to standup for a new tour dubbed 100% Fresher, which co­in­cides with the re­lease of a new com­edy al­bum culled from Sandler’s Net­flix spe­cial and, of course, a new Net­flix movie re­lease slated for June 14. Ex­pect laugh­ter, fri­vol­ity and a side of potty-mouth songs. Adam Sandler will ca­jole his way onto the Bud­weiser Stage on June 7.

The Full Light of Day

This mul­ti­me­dia the­atri­cal pro­duc­tion from the cre­ative minds of writer Daniel Brooks and direc­tor Kim Col­lier tells the story of Mary, an ag­ing ma­tri­arch in a wealthy Cana­dian fam­ily. As she ap­proaches the end of her life, Mary is forced to con­tend with her hus­band's legacy and the mis­deeds that brought her fam­ily money, priv­i­lege and pres­tige. The film-the­atre hy­brid runs at the Bluma Ap­pel The­atre, June 7 to 13.
