True Crime, Centaur Theatre, Montréal, QC

Right before showtime

I’ll admit it until we started working with Centaur Theatre, I hadn’t set foot in their venue in years. While I had recently seen the off-Broadway play The True — starring Edie Falco, Michael McKean, Peter Scolari and John Pankow — I hadn’t been in a Montreal theatre since we worked with the Segal Centre in the mid-2000s.

After attending the opening of The Children in late 2018, I found myself enchanted by this theatre that was in the midst of its 50th-anniversary season. So, when I heard that Torquil Campbell from the band Stars would be performing his one-man show True Crime, I had to get tickets.

I don’t know if it was because I was sitting in the second row but Torquil’s performance was captivating. I could feel the electricity coming off of him as well as see the spit coming out of his mouth. 🙂 In the end, he embodied the spirit of Clark Rockefeller and kept me guessing what was real and what wasn’t.

If my experience continues to be as positive at Centaur Theatre, then I will be a regular attendee.
