Moses Znaimer Launches ZoomerLive, An Intimate Performance Space in Toronto

Moses Znaimer: Globe and Mail Editorial - Zoomers Saving Economy

Introducing ZoomerLive, an experiment to see if a new intimate venue for live paid events can be established in The ZoomerPlex, ZoomerMedia’s multi-media production and event facility in Toronto’s Liberty Village neighbourhood.

ZoomerLive’s inaugural production will be a three-week run of a brand new “dramedy” called “Late Night” by Toronto award-winning playwright and Artistic Director of Theatre Brouhaha Kat Sandler (Dora Award for Outstanding New Play – Mustard – Tarragon Theatre, “Bright Lights” – Best of Toronto Fringe 2016, “Retreat” – Storefront Theatre, “Punch Up” – Best of Toronto Fringe 2015). Set in a TV studio during a veteran late night talk show host’s final episode, “Late Night” will incorporate The Zoomerplex’s actual multi-media space and live studio audience into the production.

“Late Night” previews Thursday, October 6. Opening night is Friday, October 7. The show will run Wednesday to Saturday at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets range from $25 – $50 and can be purchased online at www.ZoomerLive.com or by phone at 416.603.4740.

Sandler (pictured above) took first prize for “Late Night” in the 2015 Toronto Fringe 24-hour play-writing contest but has significantly reworked the script to focus on ageism as well as sexism. “Late Night” addresses themes that are relevant to Baby Boomers and Millennials alike. Moses acted as a consultant and gave me great insight into issues that continue to plague his generation, like discrimination in the workplace, which I wanted to juxtapose with challenges Millennials face today, all set against the exciting backdrop of live television” said Sandler.

“Late Night” will mark Moses’ first return to live theatre since his production of “Tamara,” a critically acclaimed long running, mobile, interactive whodunit where the audience as individuals move from room to room according to their own choices as to the characters and plot(s) they wish to pursue. The New York Times called “Tamara” “self-defining” and “a shot of adrenaline for sedentary theatergoers who are accustomed to sitting in the dark and watching actors do all the work”. “Tamara” played in Toronto, Los Angeles (where it ran for nine years), New York, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Rome, and Warsaw. In the tradition of Tamara, the audience in “Late Night” is as much a part of the show as the actors.
