5. An Oddball Day

A scene from the Shaw Festival's The Philanderer.  

Temper the lush life with a dose of drama at the Shaw Festival.

This summer, social mores and sexual politics are cleverly reversed at the historic Royal George Theatre (85 Queen St.; 800-511-7429) in Shaw’s The Philanderer. Afterward, head to the Shaw Café & Wine Bar’s street-side patio and drown those heavy thoughts under a bronzed likeness of G.B.S.
