Fantasia ’13: Experience “THE HISTORY OF THE DEVIL” in Montreal this weekend
For just three days, Title 66 Productions of Montreal is staging Clive Barker’s three-hour stage play THE HISTORY OF THE DEVIL as part of the Fantasia festival. No Barker fan in the area should miss this once, as his plays are rarely performed—and certainly not with this level of style, as the accompanying images let on.
Directed by Jeremy Michael Segal, the show is running through tomorrow, August 3; if you missed Thursday’s premiere, there are still tickets available for the rest of the run. This writer has been waiting to see one of Barker’s works staged live since age 13, and word is that this is an excellent, artful production and will not disappoint (look for our review soon). THE HISTORY OF THE DEVIL is being staged at Place des Arts-Cinquième Salle, 175 St. Catherine Street West; tickets are $24 (including all taxes and service charges) and can be ordered by calling ( 514) 842-2112 or on-line here.
