Held Over! One of the Most Daring and Exhilarating Undertakings in the Scope of Modern Theatre – Rebecca Northan in Blind Date Extended Mar. 9 through Mar. 12

TORONTO, ON (Feb. 24, 2010) – Harbourfront Centre’s World Stage today announced the extension of Rebecca Northan in Blind Date, the hilarious and sexy show adored by audiences and critics alike.

Held over by popular demand, Blind Date has been extended for a third week, Mar. 9 through Mar. 12. After a sold-out run in 2009, audiences will have four additional opportunities to see Northan’s brilliant improvisational mastery.

“...a flight of theatrical fancy that is absolutely magical. Four stars out of four.” – Toronto Star

Northan plays Mimi, a young Parisian woman waiting for a blind date in a café somewhere along the banks of the Seine. When she is stood up, Mimi turns to the audience to find someone brave enough to answer love’s call. Blind Date is a fusion of clown, improvisation, theatre, and social experiment. The result is nail-biting hilarity where nothing is off limits, and each show is as different as the date selected.
