MAY 16 TO JUNE 16 EXTENDED TO JULY 4! On the surface, Kim’s Convenience is a love letter to the countless Korean corner stores that have fallen victim to Toronto’s ever-in-flux business landscape. But that’s just the backdrop for the private inter-generational and inter-cultural conflicts with with so many Canadians can identify. Written by Ins Choi, the humorous yet poignant tale of a Korean-Canadian family bridging the gap between old traditions and modern life returns to the stage following its wildly successful Soulpepper Theatre Company debut this past January. Young Centre for the Performing Arts, $32 to $68; call 416-866-8666 or visit here for showtimes and to purchase tickets.
