The December Man reviewed.
Three stars for Colleen Murphy's drama about the aftermath of the Ecole Polytechnique massacre. It's a tight production and thought-provoking, even if I'm not entirely sold on the script. I started writing the review and found I could have kept going for a couple thousand more words; the post-show chatter with friends was more heated than normal too. Maybe that's all we can really ask of a night out at the theatre - that it be fuel for fiery discussion. (Maybe I'll put some of the review outtakes here when Bell finally installs my high-speed internet in my new apartment...)
On the other hand: The Star's Richard Ouzounian gives out three stars as well, but he likes what I don't and vice versa. A third three stars from Eye's Christopher Hoile, but that's out of five not four and he gives them for the production not the play. Meanwhile, Robert Cushman believes we've moved beyond Beyond Mozambique.
In happier Montreal news, my play-off Bard is working wonders so far. Kovalev!
