Think the idea of An Inconvenient Opera is a bit off-key? You might be singing a different tune after reading this: Apparently, An Inconvenient Musical opened to sold-out crowds in Toronto last summer.

Says Kurt Firla, co-director/writer of the production:

It’s a satirical look at the climate crisis, corporate greed, and the general public’s reluctance to do anything about the problem. It features some of Toronto’s top improvisers/comedians, and we’re giving $1 from each ticket to the David Suzuki Foundation. The theater will also be powered by renewable energy.

The show will run again in Toronto beginning mid-June, and they’re looking to take it to New York in the fall.
