Chlorine is the best play I've seen in a long time. Inspiring, funny and a little bit heartbreaking. Awesome acting. A must see! *****

I caught a matinee of Last Night at the Gayety during a recent trip to Montreal. The show was lots of fun and it was fabulous to be able to see an English speaking show. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

Plays in both English and French are presented here. We saw only one but it was terrific. Very easy to speak either language to reserve tickets, nice wine bar for intermission and reportedly, a good French restaurant me t door.
