Montreal Theatre: What’s on this Weekend (February 3rd – 5th)


It’s all about side-stitching laughter this weekend in Montreal as comedy sweeps stages all around! Check out our selection of shows happening across town from Friday, February 3rd to Sunday, February 5th:

  • Noises Off completes its first week of performances at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts (5170 Côte-Ste-Catherine). In this wildly hilarious and hugely popular farce of a play-within-a-play, shenanigans unfold – both onstage and off – as an ambitious director and his ragtag group of actors pull their act together to put on a show. Buy tickets online ($32 – 65)
  • Bakersfield Mist also heads into the first weekend of its run at the Centaur Theatre (453 St. François-Xavier). Hard-drinking, chain-smoking, down-and-out, Maude (Nicola Cavendish) is convinced she bought an unknown Jackson Pollock masterpiece worth millions at a junk shop. The question is whether the highbrow art expert, Lionel (Jonathan Monro), will agree. A comedy on what makes art, and people, truly authenticBuy tickets online ($28 – 51)

  • Mr Goldberg Goes to Tel Aviv presented by Infinithéâtre plays at the St-James Theatre (265 Rue Saint-Jacques). Part farce, part suspenseful drama, award-winning writer Oren Safdie’s play is a jaw-rattling ride through the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, where allegiances constantly shift, religion is irreverent, and politics is a matter of survival. Buy tickets online ($12 – 25)
  • Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike presented by West Island community theatre troupe Lakeshore Players Dorval has made its way to Lakeside Academy (5050 Rue Sherbrooke, Lachine). With wit and absurdity, Christopher Durang’s Tony-winning comedy blends Chekhov’s famous ennui with the modern-day toils and troubles of celebrity, social networking, and age into a laugh-out-loud comedy that will tickle your funny bone and stimulate your mind. Buy tickets online ($20 – 26)

  • August: Osage County presented by the graduating class of the Professional Theatre Program of Dawson College continues at the New Dome Theatre (2000 Atwater St) through to Saturday. A fiercely funny Pulitzer and Tony Award winning black comedy of a family caught in a complex web of dysfunctionality. As three generations delve into the dark secrets of their past, great tenderness is revealed with raw and touching honesty. Reserve tickets online ($5 – 15)
  • Plato’s Symposium presented by McGill Classics Play also ends its run on Saturday, February 4th at the MainLine Theatre (3997 Boul Saint-Laurent). A bunch of people get drunk and one of them says true stuff. Join Socrates and his friends as they discuss drinking, sex and love in this new adaptation of Plato’s classic by Alex Martalogu and Meghan Poplacean. Buy tickets online ($12 – 15)
