The Man That Got Away (A Special Appearance)

8 December - 18 December 2022
In an intimate performance weaving together music, confessionals, and personal archives, Martin Julien unmaps his queer upbringing as the child of a lesbian mother and gay father in mid-20th-century Toronto. Exploding the cabaret form, this show grapples with the layers of our performed identities and the plurality of ways that we ‘come out.’ Family secrets, shared histories, and the musical theatre canon come together in this gesture towards a space of libration, memory, desire, and truth.
