The Rocky Horror Show
Theatrically speaking (Montreal theatrically speaking, that is), the live production of “The Rocky Horror Show” at the MainLine Theatre (located at 3997 St. Laurent Boulevard) is the perfect solution for a dark and stormy night this month. The way out plot of the show will be familiar to those who have caught the cult classic 1975 film version which starred Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon; however, this version is two hours of outrageous, rowdy fun, with a great local cast that breathes new life into this Halloween standard, especially those ribald, phantom(ess)-filled musical numbers. By the way, verbal call-outs and snide remarks are welcome, but throwing objects (such as rice) is a definite no-no. This is one event that should be part of your Halloween plans this year, and it’s playing right through October 31.
And coming to the MainLine Theatre next month is the Chocolate Moose Theatre Company’s production of “An Iliad” for nine performances on November 2-6 and 10-13 at 8 p.m. (with a 2 p.m. matinee on November 6). “An Iliad” tells the story of a poet who recounts the bloody epic battles between Achilles and Hector, as they are swept away in a grand scale story that is filled with rage, violence and grief. Tickets are $15, $12 for students, seniors and QDF members. For more information, call 514-849-3378.
