I think it’s fair to say that the opening, world premiere weekend of Les filles du QUOI? at Lost Nation Theater was a roaring success. After two years of pandemic delays and disappointments, I had nearly given up hope that this show would ever be performed, so spending four fantastic performances with warm and receptive audiences was a tremendous and almost unanticipated gift. If you were among those audiences, thank you! Merci for your generous attention and belly laughs!
Jim Lowe’s glowing review in the Times-Argus was a welcomed bonus. Adjectives employed include: real, relatable, delicious, merciless, maddening, very poignant, and very funny!
Tickets are still available for this weekend’s shows — get yours now! And if you’re not near Montpelier, Vermont, a recording of our opening night live-stream is available for on-demand viewing until the show closes this Sunday, June 26. After that the link will disappear, so don’t miss it!
And remember, you can learn more about Les filles by listening to:
- A recent episode of the fabulous French-Canadian Legacy Podcast, or
- My chat with Ric Cingeri on WDEV’s Vermont Viewpoints.
And if you crave a little less conversation and a little more action, may I refer you to Les filles du QUOI? Playlist on Spotify, which will get you in the mood without all the chit-chat.
See you this weekend at the theater!
