SCHWARTZ’S: THE MUSICAL – December 14 to 16, 2018
Centaur Theatre is celebrating its 50th anniversary in style with three staged play readings dubbed the Legacy Series. “Throughout this very special year, we pay tribute to the audiences who remind us what a privilege it is to live in a city as vibrant and diverse as Montreal and who inspire us to tell stories that celebrate extraordinary human experiences.” – Artistic and Executive Director, Eda Holmes.
Centaur presents the oh-so-Montreal smash, Schwartz’s: the Musical, based on Schwartz’s Hebrew Delicatessen: The Story, a popular book about ‘the Main’ by Bill Brownstein’s, brought to musical life by Montreal’s beloved kings of parody, Rick Blue and George Bowser. What could be more Montreal than the hearty smoked meat sandwich that fueled the city’s bustling lifeline of merchants and their colourful clientele? The lively re-enactment is under the gifted direction of Eda Holmes.
