We’re looking forward to seeing you at La Boheme

Doors open at 7:30pm. The show begins at 8pm, and is approximately 2.5 hours including two 20-minute intermissions (so you can refresh our pianist’s drink at the bar).

Tickets

Please note: This email is not your ticket. Check your inbox for your electronic tickets from TicketLeap, which you can print or display to us on your phone/tablet for entry. (In the TicketLeap email, click the link “Download the barcode ticket”.) NB: If you can’t find your tickets, we can scan you in by first & last name. Just bring a government-issued ID.

All tickets are general admission and seating is cabaret-style, available on a first-come, first-seated basis. (So the earlier you arrive, the quicker you can choose your seat!) But don’t worry: If you have a ticket, you are guaranteed a seat. This venue is wheelchair accessible.

At-the-door/Rush Tickets

Have a friend who wants to attend the performance? Advance tickets for #AtGBoheme are now off-sale due to record-breaking interest. But! They can buy Rush Tickets (seated or standing room) at the door and line up for these (as early as 7pm or 7:30pm) outside the Tranzac. So far all people in the Rush line have been able to get in!

About the Tranzac Club

Located off Bloor Street West, on 292 Brunswick Avenue, the historic Tranzac Club is one of the oldest dive bars in Toronto — and the site of our original 2011 production of #AtGBoheme.

The club is actually a multi-story performance space, with two front rooms and a second floor. We are performing on the main floor, in the back space.

What to expect

Drinks!

In keeping with the AtG spirit, The Tranzac is fully equipped with a bar (cash or Visa, ATM on site) right in our performance space, so you can bring your drinks to your seats.

Life-drawing!

You’ll notice that inside the venue, members of Toronto’s Ex Libris Arts (Jessie Durham and Dmitry Bondarenko) are recording our performances through a medium Puccini’s boho characters would approve of: life-drawing. Their sketches are for sale and they love chatting with curious appreciators of art, so visit them during the intermissions.

Smartphones on and out!

Take photos and live-tweet all night, including during the show! (Just no flash, and absolutely no audio or video recording, please.) Use the hashtag #AtGBoheme and tag @AtGTheatre (social links below).
