Theatre! SQUEEEEEE!

After the rush of theatre viewing that was June and July, it’s felt weird to not be seeing shows on a regular basis in the last couple of months. Well, all that’s over now! There is currently a veritable smorgasbord of theatre currently available to us in the Ottawa region.

A few weeks ago I saw Noises Off at The Gladstone. It’s a pretty funny British farce that is still going strong for another couple of weeks.

The Great Canadian Theatre Company has the one-woman tour de force that is The Syringa Tree, which I’m really looking forward to seeing.

Tonight, you’ve got the opening of Third Wall‘s take on the Harold Pinter classic, Old Times.

And tomorrow there’s another opening night with Vision Theatre’s version of The Pillowman. I love Martin McDonagh’s work and I’ve purposely gone against the grain and haven’t read much about the production in order to be fully surprised and enthralled.

I’m going to have a busy time trying to squeeze in all these performances before I leave town next week, but I can’t wait!

  1. Yeah, Noises Off was pretty hilarious. Syringa Tree was lovely and very polished. I mostly laughed all the way through, until the part that made me cry. Damn them for making my cry on my birthday!
    I’ll be at opening of The Pillowman and then Old Times for the Sunday matinee.
    Oh, also Les Sept Jours de Simon Labrosse at Théâtre de l’Île was excellent. Well worth the short trek to “The Dark Side” (a.k.a. Hull) for those who have a half-decent understanding of French. http://www.gatineau.ca/page.asp?p=quoi_faire/calendrier_culturel
