The Mayor of Toronto has plans to Ford-ify the city to make it terrorist-proof. This means the Sal Feldman Talent Agency has to move by September 11, 2011, as it’s the proposed site of the Mayor’s new security headquarters. How will a musical commemorating the events of 9/11 save the agency from extinction? Don’t miss The Specials this fall. Directed by Toronto’s own, Melissa D’Agostino (Lupe:Undone, A Very Lupe X-Mas, Lupe’s Next Top Lupe). This show will make you lose your head!
