Robert Lepage: 887

“Fans of Robert Lepage have come to expect certain things from the French-Canadian theater maker: seductive storytelling, wry character observation and a stagecraft that lies somewhere between technical innovation and magic. All such expectations are happily fulfilled in 887.” —Variety

For decades considered one of the world’s greatest theater visionaries, Canadian director/creator Robert Lepage presents an alternatingly comic and poignant remembrance of his boyhood home in Quebec City. Replete with dollhouse-scale buildings and painstaking miniatures, 887 combines ingenious storytelling with awe-inducing illusions through high-tech scenic transformations. Written, directed, and performed by Lepage, this solo tour de force investigates universal questions of identity and self through bewitching tales of the things we can’t quite remember and the things we can’t forget. Don’t miss the global theater blockbuster of the season!
