Who can say that they became exactly who they dreamt of becoming when they were young? Martin Bédard, chansonnier and storyteller extraordinaire, takes over Centaur’s main floor gallery to share his own journey from the banlieues of Montreal to Broadway and back again in this bilingual cabaret. Bédard is accompanied on piano by Doug Price. Tickets are $10 each and are booked through Box Office – hurry, our next performance on December 1st is almost sold out!
