SideMart’s daring and innovation don’t stop. MONTREAL GAZETTE
SIDEMART THEATRICAL GROCERY was, at one time, English Montreal’s best theatrical softball team. And while we have a collection of Montreal Theatre Awards numbering somewhere north of 14, it’s really the slow pitch trophy above that sets us apart.
Now, we pleasantly bounce up and down and back forth between Montreal and Toronto.
It’s likely worth noting that our shift in focus from Montreal to Toronto caused a massive subsequent shift in our branding when we went from SIDEMART to SIDEMART. Take a moment to soak that one in.
Here’s a short list of some interesting theatre things we’ve done over the past few years:
The world premiere of Pulitzer Prize Award-winning John Patrick Shanley’s A WOMAN IS A SECRET.
The English Language Canadian premiere of Ivan Viripaev’s existential comedy ILLUSIONS.
The world premiere of Morris Panych’s GORDON.
The Canadian premiere of Mark Doherty’s hit TRAD.
Our Artistic Director Andrew Shaver, recently directed the smash hit smash hit production of GREASE, en francais, for Juste Pour Rire in Montreal. In 3 summers it has sold over 100,000 tickets. In 2018, Shaver will direct the world French Language Premiere of the Tony Award-winning musical ONCE for Just For Laughs.
Here are 3 VERY SERIOUS videos made during our time rehearsing John Mighton’s Scientific Americans.
