FRINGE-MOI: “Agréable.” — (initial review of Delicious Lies)

We’ve got 12 shows planned for June of 2012 and we’ll be featuring guest appearances by some of the hottest Fringers that have stories to share! The shows will be taking place at the L’Ame-Art Art Gallery in Montreal’s legendary Mile-End.

We hope you’ll join us for what promises to be a show our grand-kids will be telling tales about to their grand-kids.

In the meantime, did you know that the L’Ame-Art Art Gallery donated their space to us for free? It’s true! But they did ask for a donation, so Taelstrum is having a fundraiser show in May 2012 to raise that donation. Here are the particulars:

The Epic Two-City Canadian Tour

Join storytellers JD “Hobbes” Hickey and Marie Bilodeau, with Shayne Gryn on strings, for an evening full of wonder, drama, laughter, music, and downright silliness. This is Hobbes and Marie’s whirlwind, cross-country, two-city tour. They kick-off this storytelling tour-de-force in Montreal (April 17th) and end it in Ottawa (May 14th)! Crazy schedule! Even though they’ll surely be hoarse by the time they reach Ottawa in May, you can be sure that all they’ll want to do is tell more tales.

Marie Bilodeau, author of the “Heirs of a Broken Land” trilogy and “Destiny’s Blood” —
