We thoroughly enjoyed the one-man show "Playing with Fire" which had a limited run at the Centaur. The theatre itself is located in Old Montreal, is small enough to provide an intimate feel, but big enough to get a good theatre experience. All the productions...More

Nicola won't disappoint in this two person production. She's brassy, dark and all too human about her one shot at actually having a piece of something amazing, a Jackson Pollock to be exact. The theatre is a tribute to the past, it's past it's prime,...More
