1. THE FACE-OFF
Sure, these SportChek-sponsored exhibition tennis matches don’t actually count for anything, but with the calibre of players coming to the ACC, it seems peevish to complain. Former number one Andy Roddick, who recently retired, challenges upstart local boy Milos Raonic, while Serena Williams takes on Agnieszka Radwanska (Williams beat Radwanska in this year’s Wimbledon final). As a slightly random appetizer, there will be a pre-match celebrity mixed doubles game, in which the four professionals will be joined by George Stroumboulopoulos, Adrian Grenier and the current Canadian Bachelor, Brad Smith. November 16. $49–$214. Air Canada Centre, 50 Bay St., 1-855-985-5000, ticketmaster.ca

Jeff Calhoun’s production of Jekyll and Hyde to stop in Toronto

Tony-nominated triple-threat director, choreographer and producer Jeff Calhoun has put his talents to work on a new production of the Jekyll and Hyde musical, which is set to hit Toronto as part of a pre-Broadway tour between November 14 and 18 at the Mirvish Theatre. Canadian R&B singer Deborah Cox (remember “Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here”? Or this 1999 Roots commercial?) will play the role of Lucy, while former American Idol contestant and Rock of Ages star Constantine Maroulis takes on the dual title role of Jekyll/Hyde.
