André Robitaille and Louis Champagne will be sporting their bowler hats this summer, taking on the famous roles of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy on stage in this made-in-Quebec mega-production! Combining humour and pathos in the inimitable Laurel and Hardy style, this new show reveals the hidden side of the legendary duo who dominated film comedy in the 30’s and 40’s, going behind the scenes to portray key moments of their lives. The show touches on their genius and special connection, as well as their demons, obsessions and love stories. Beyond just a story of success and failure in show business, it’s about a wonderful and heart-warming friendship.
