Many plays presented recently in Montreal will be presented elsewhere in Quebec by the summer. This is particularly the case with Projet Polytechnique, You are an animal, The misanthrope, Rose and the machine, Zero and The Turing machine. The play Manikanetish, presented in March 2023 at Duceppe, will be shown in around twenty cities, including Pessamit and Sept-Îles. As for the theatrical ball Pissing Standing Without Lifting Your Skirt, it will return to the Center du Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui in April before visiting Quebec, Rimouski and Gaspé. The shows originally created in the Quebec capital are not left out. We only have to think of the theater-documentary show Run delait or the solos S’aimer ben packetée (defended by Ariel Charest) or Maurice, a little gem signed and performed by Anne-Marie Olivier, which will spread in the province too.

Several summer musicals or plays are also on tour. The show La Corriveau – la soif des corbels will visit 17 cities between now and April 13, while the musical Lili St-Cyr will begin its Quebec tour in Granby on March 1. Pub royal, from the Cowboys Fringants and the circus collective Les 7 Doigts, will arrive in Trois-Rivières in May. Also note, the play Silence on tourne will be playing in 13 cities this spring, while Symphorien and Le placard will continue their tour.

Hardly any records are sold anymore, but there will be action on stages throughout the province. Salebarbes resumes its already triumphant tour in February, which is due to end in December 2024 at the Videotron Center in Quebec. Alexandra Stréliski will spend most of the year in Quebec, even if her career abroad is flourishing. Émile Bilodeau, Philippe Brach, Sara Dufour and Isabelle Boulay will also travel the province. Karkwa, whose return was expected to be temporary, announced concerts in several cities in March. Finally, remember that a show dedicated to the songs of Nicole Martin will also be on tour in many regions of Quebec.

The art of giving your comedy show a good title is a challenge that has seen many perish. Let us therefore salute the poetry of the titles of three tours to be seen throughout Quebec, the Montreal premieres of which will take place this winter: Les imperfect bonheurs… et autres tutti quanti de la vie de la vie de veteran Mario Jean (March 5 at the Théâtre Maisonneuve), No need to add the sauce of the (not so) newcomer Neev (March 26 at the Olympia) and Ahh Caramel… by the amiable Martin Vachon (May 7 at the Olympia). Speaking of poets: Mike Ward returns to the stage with Modeste (premiere at Club Soda on April 10) and Rosalie Vaillancourt with MILF (premiere on April 9 at Gesù).
