TO MARCH 21 Imagine being an awkward teenage boy whose divorced mother decides to move across the country and embrace her Jewish heritage while falling in love with a Wiccan woman. That’s what happened to David Hein, who co-wrote the charming My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding with his wife Irene Carl Sankoff. Since its debut at the 2009 Toronto Fringe Festival, the musical comedy, starring Rosemary Doyle and Lisa Horner has entertained audiences with such songs as “Don’t Take Your Lesbian Moms to Hooters,” and the eye-opening “A Short History of Gay Marriage in Canada.” Panasonic Theatre, Tuesday to Friday 8 p.m., Saturday 5 and 9 p.m., Sunday 7 p.m., $25 to $60; call 416-872-1212 or navigate here for tickets.
