Schwartz’s the musical in concert!
SCHWARTZ’S: THE MUSICAL – December 14 to 16, 2018
Centaur revisits the 2011 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, 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 with the help of Jonathan Patterson. Musical direction by Chris Barillaro.

Centaur Theatre is celebrating its 50th anniversary in style with three staged play readings dubbed the Legacy Series. The series includes two crowd pleasers from Centaur’s golden canon and a third not-yet-produced new work to metaphorically fling open the doors to Centaur’s next 50 years. The selections are testaments to Montreal ’s rich creativity and the theatre community that Centaur is dedicated to showcasing.
