Pierre's picks: 5 don't-miss events in Montreal this weekend
Accès Asie, The Odyssey, Kim Mitchell, Top Girls, 2 Pianos 4 Hands, Chamber Music Festival this weekend
Every Friday, CBC Montreal’s Homerun arts reporter Pierre Landry brings you the top five things to see and do in Montreal this weekend.
Here are Pierre's picks for May 9, 10 and 11.
2. Hot off the success of The Iliad, Geordie Productions closes out the season with Homer's The Odyssey. Dean Patrick Fleming directs the casts that includes Quincy Armorer, Daniel Brochu and Susan Glover. At Centaur Theatre (453 St. François-Xavier) this weekend and next weekend. Today and Saturday's performances are sold out, but tickets are still available for Sunday's — so act fast!
3. He's just doing his rock 'n' roll duty, but Kim Mitchell has been going at it for over 40 years! He brings his standout solo hits and favourites from his Max Webster years out on the road. Friday at 8 p.m. at Club Soda (1225 St-Laurent).
5. There are two plays to catch this weekend. First, Top Girls, presented at Segal Centre (5170 Côte Ste-Catherine) — Micheline Chevrier directs this story of success and the price women pay for it. Over at Centaur Theatre (453 St. Francçois-Xavier), music takes centre stage in 2 Pianos 4 Hands.
