For the second time since the start of the pandemic, the management of the Théâtre Jean-Duceppe is forced to postpone the unveiling of the plays “King Dave” and “Le Loup” due to the continued closure of theaters announced at the beginning. of the week by the Premier of Quebec, François Legault.
Respectively registered on the schedule of the Montreal establishment on September 29 and October 20, the two shows will be entitled to new dates which have not yet been announced. “King Dave” is a new version of Alexandre Goyette’s creation, while “Le Loup” is to star Luc Senay and Maude Guérin.
For the moment, the performances of “La meute” by Catherine-Anne Toupin, scheduled for December 2, are holding up.
In the meantime, theatergoers can listen to François Archambault’s novelty, “Pétrole”, available in audio format, for $ 9.99, on duceppe.com.
The government measures imposed also disrupt the plans drawn up by the people of Duceppe to greet Michel Dumont, this great man of the theater who died in mid-August. The tribute which was to be broadcast live on the web will not be presented on Monday, as previously announced.
Rather, testimonials will be shot individually. Archive images and photos will be used to concoct a video that will salute the work and involvement of the one who passed away at 79 years old.
