Music, dance and theatre in Montreal this week

Théâtre : Sextett. Intrigante proposition que cette « comédie érotique » imaginée par l’auteur français Rémi De Vos. Présentée cet automne au Théâtre du Rond-Point, à Paris, la pièce met en scène un jeune homme poursuivi par le désir de plusieurs femmes délirantes. Une coproduction à la distribution internationale, incluant la charmante Portugaise Maria de Medeiros et notre Anne-Marie Cadieux. » Du 12 janvier au 6 février, à l’Espace Go —Marie Labrecque
Danse : C’est Danièle Desnoyers qui ouvre l’année avec Dévorer le ciel à la salle Pierre-Mercure du 14 au 16, tandis que Dana Michel et Frédéric Marier se partagent une soirée de la série Impulsions à Tangente, jusqu’au 17. —Fabienne Cabado
Jazz : Ven 15, sam. 16 » Alain Caron trio avec John Roney (pno) et Samuel Joly (btr.) Resto-bar Le dièse onze. (21 h) —Marc Chenard 
Theatre: The off-Broadway smash hit Menopause The Musical comes to the Centaur from January 12th to February 7th. Four women of completely different backgrounds meet at Bloomingdale’s lingerie sale with nothing in common but a black lace bra and the day-to-day hectic challenges of aging. The musical hilariously re-lyricizes songs from the 60s, 70s and 80s to suit the situation. The Bee Gee’s “Stayin’ Alive” becomes “Stayin’ Awake”, “My Guy”, changes to “My Thighs” and “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” is transformed into “In the Guest Room or on the Sofa, My Husband Sleeps at Night”. Celebrating life transitions and the perks and pains of womanhood, this show promises a rollicking good time for all ages. —Jessica Hill

Theatre: The McGill Arts Undergraduate Theatre Society is putting on their 4th annual musical opening on January 14th and continuing its run on the 15th, 16th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd.
