Today’s Notable 3some in Toronto: April 30, 2014

Here’s a trio of the hottest things you can do on the last day of April.*

World Literacy
Where: Roof Lounge at The Park Hyatt Toronto Hotel 
When: 6:30pm

The KAMA Reading Series is well into its 22nd season and tonight it will continue to promote ‘the joy attained through reading, literature, and critical thought’ as a way to reduce poverty through literacy. (At the Park Hyatt – obviously.) Tonight’s authors include award-winning writers Teresa Toten, Rachel Manley and Shyam Selvadurai, as well as Director of the Canada Centre for Global Security Studies Ron Deibert. Spend your hump day getting learned for a good cause.

The Lion King
Where: Princess of Wales Theatre
When: 7:30pm

The #1 musical in the world is back in Toronto for a limited run and tonight is opening night. The Tony Award-winning play isn’t just for kids, though; Newsweek called its Broadway show “a landmark event in entertainment,” which we think is a pretty clear way of saying you should go. With only six weeks to get your Simba fill, tonight’s as good as any to see if you can feel the love. 

James Blunt 
Where: Danforth Music Hall  
When: 7:00pm 

We know, we told you about 40-year-old James yesterday. But he’s playing again tonight and ‘cause it’s been an entire decade since You’re Beautiful took over your mind for the better part of a year, we thought you might want to revisit it. Also, check out his Twitter account if you’re at all unsure of this guy – he’s pretty self-debasing given how famous he once was. And musicians capable of humility always put on the best shows. 

*Of course, you could always stay in and fall even more in love with Emma Stone
