Toronto's fall arts roundup

High-brow culture, high-tech gadgetry and big-time pizzazz draw crowds this fall

Black, white and wild all over

International photography is front and centre at the Art Gallery of Ontario (317 Dundas Street West;; adults $25, kids $16.50): two British and two Canadian photographers go head to head for the Grange Prize, plus there's a retrospective of seminal black-and-white photographer Josef Sudek. The big-ticket here is Frida & Diego, with 80 paintings and drawings by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and her partner, painter Diego Rivera.


Have kids in tow? Then check out Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana (additional $10) exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum (Queen's Park Circle;; adults $15, kids $13.50). This temporary exhibit has cool interactive features like walls with videos that respond to approaching visitors, and special iPad apps (bring your own device or use those provided).

Straight out of a book

The city draws big names for its annual Toronto International Festival of Authors (235 Queens Quay West;; $18 per event), this year October 18 to 28. Heavyweights like Paul Auster, Michael Chabon, Emma Donoghue, Rohinton Mistry and Alice Munro are among the dozens of authors taking part in over 50 readings and round-table discussions.

Dark passions

If you're in town November 14 to 18, you'll have the chance to see the NYC cast of Jekyll & Hyde: the Musical (244 Victoria Street;; $29-$120) on tour with this Broadway extravaganza. American Idol star and Tony nominee Constantine Maroulis plays the dual role of gentleman-monster.
