Arts Commons, Martha CohenTheatre
Includes an intermission

Born and raised in the windy city of Chicago, Toronzo Cannon’s music is inspired by his life driving a bus on the West side by day, and performing live in the blues clubs at night. Singer and songwriter, guitarist and storyteller, his electrifying music ranges from soulful ballads to swinging shuffles and searing blues anthems. The Chicago Tribune raves, “Deep, contemporary Chicago blues...razor-sharp guitar and compelling, forceful singing” and the Chicago Sun-Times calls him, “One of Chicago's new greats".

Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style Martha Cohen Theatre since 1985. Tiered levels of seats form a three-quarter circle around the performing area eliminating the separation between the audience and performers. The farthest seat from the stage is a mere 39 feet away.

Situated in the heart of Arts Commons beside Jack Singer Concert Hall, Martha Cohen Theatre received state-of-the-art sound upgrade in 2014, as well as all new seats and a new lighting console in 2016, ensuring that it remains at the top of theatre industry standard. The Martha Cohen Theatre was named after the late Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
