In this city we are well aware of our HUGE group of talented performers in our entertainment industry. This year I have seen a lot. From Musicians to Theatre. Festivals to Business/Creativity Conferences. There is one talented artist here in Montreal that gives me new life every time I see a show!
Billy L’Amour is an outstanding example of the depth in art that Montreal finds in it’s performers. I seem to be a little late to Miss L’Amour’s game & I am only kicking myself for not catching on sooner. Twice this year I have been blown away by the high production value, the originality & talent Billy brings to any stage.
The one woman show Gentleman Prefer Billy was top notch. Re-worked classic tunes sung to the gods of cabaret! So funny, deliciously shady(with good reason) & so inspiring to see in a world of lack-luster drag performers (sorry to the queens of Mado Cabaret, you look good… but learn your damn lyrics when you perform, really.)
Miss L’Amour brought out the mega-pop star realness with her Halloween spectacular – Hysteria. Complete with back-up dancers, phenomenal ones I might add, a full storied concept & major radio smash hits. Seeing this show marked Billy L’Amour not only as our city’s finest drag talent, but one of our finest pop stars as well. Easily combatting shows I have seen from some of radio’s most popular performers at venues like Metropolis or Corona Theatre
I see you Billy L’Amour. You’re onto something. All you readers take note & do not miss your chance to see this amazonian vision kill a stage near you. You don’t have to wait long either!
