Troubadour

The troubadour sings from his heart
The song that's the hit of the show
Watch him sing and play the strings of his guitar
Alone in the bright spotlight's glow – Johnny Cash

On May 23 at 8:30pm, Montreal Improv presents Troubadour, which combines live music with improv comedy.

To begin the evening, a musical guest will perform a selection of acoustic songs. A group of Montreal’s best improvisors will then use the musician’s lyrics and melodies as inspiration for their scenes.

Cues

Listen carefully: Cues is a hilarious improv comedy show that draws inspiration from what you hear.

Watch as a talented cast of performers create memorable characters and locations using songs, TV commercials, sound effects, soundscapes, white noise, books on tape, you name it. If there's a sound that can be heard, there's a great comedy scene to go along with it.

Films In Focus

From the creators of PRECINCT comes FILMS IN FOCUS, an improvised movie review show hosted by esteemed and bickering film critics Lars Van Leuwen and Benji Manking. This show will be taking a look back at some classic films that they feel are so some of the best ever committed to celluloid.

Of course, this being an improv show, they've invited some of the best improvisors in Montreal to play scenes from these entirely made up films, based only on a brief description. Lars and Benji will then give their reviews based on those scenes.

Join us for a hilarious show that draws its inspiration from Siskel & Ebert's 80's television series SNEAK PREVIEWS where snide remarks were par for the course and common ground was as a rare as a good Police Academy sequel.

Tolstoy


Leo Tolstoy blends intimate exploration of romance and family with vast historical panoramas. He marries darkness and light, the comic and the profound. His subtle eye ranges from army posts to aristocratic palaces, from peasant huts to prison camps. At times, he presents stories of mad jealousy or social frivolity; at times, he presents stories of spiritual growth and redemption. For one night only, a show drawing on the life and works of this master writer and prophetic figure.

Featuring Le Gongue, a group that glides and crashes through the sky on Montreal’s linguistic winds, with all its swells and turbulence, as the bang of a gong lets them “get it on”, in the immortal words of T.Rex.

And featuring TOPS, a group which takes audiences on exhilarating joy rides. Their characters and relationships craft textured worlds. Prepare to laugh and be moved, all at the same time.

Edmund Coates will perform the texts from Tolstoy.

Le Gongue: Dominique Blain, Inga Knoth, Thierry Leblanc, François Messier, and Christopher Tyler

TOPS: Joel Fink, Jordan McRae, Julie Santini, Adrianne Schoen, Kiriakos Vanikiotis
