BELLES SOEURS: THE MU­SI­CAL

Where Ottawa - - Here & Now -

UN­TIL MAY 14

Orig­i­nally writ­ten in French, this ir­rev­er­ent Québe­cois theatre clas­sic was ground­break­ing when it bowed in 1968. Now, the English trans­la­tion comes to the stage at the Na­tional Arts Cen­tre. Tune up for the tale of Ger­maine Lau­zon, a work­ing­class house­wife in Mon­treal, and new­found win­ner of one mil­lion Gold Star trad­ing stamps – ex­change­able for var­i­ous goods. Her cel­e­bra­tion with fe­male fam­ily and friends is be­set by jeal­ousy, pride, gossip – and plenty of songs and laughs. On the mu­si­cal side of the NAC’s ledger, don’t miss Royal Wood with Rose Cousins and the NAC Orches­tra on May 6. Mean­while, Belles Soeurs is a theatre fam­ily you won’t want to miss. (p.38)
