Normally when Drake’s in Toronto, you can find him sitting courtside at a Raptors game. But last weekend he traded sports for the stage and headed to Soul Pepper Theatre.
Drake took to instagram saying, “go see my brother in a play called The Brothers Size… it’s brilliant,” in a story to his 57 million followers.
Many Twitter users were shocked to see Drake at the play’s Canadian premier.
Drake came to see a show about Black masculinity, queerness and brotherhood, gave it a standing ovation, met the cast backstage, stuck around to celebrate the entire team at the reception, posted about Toronto theatre to 57M followers — and I just have A LOT of respect for that. pic.twitter.com/ySkOm1NkXb

Set in the Deep South, The Brothers Size weaves together music and mythology and focuses on issues surrounding Black masculinity, queerness and brotherhood.

Not sure if it’s the positive reviews the play has been receiving or Drake’s surprise appearance, but tickets are selling fast. Be sure to snag your seats before The Brothers Size closes on May 26.
