It was yesterday that the stars gathered on the occasion of the first media of the long-awaited musical Fame. This new production Juste pour rire, featuring Gabrielle Fontaine, Marie-Denise Pelletier and a myriad of other young talents, brings to life this story that has rocked our dreams and our youthful ambitions. It is in the setting of the prestigious High School of Performing Art in New York that twenty young talents will give everything to try to carve a place in the competitive environment of the performing arts. Through the dance, the music and the theater, the audience explores to the rhythm of the performers the torment and the great moments of flight experienced by these brilliant teenagers.
Young and old were feverish to rediscover the classic, staged again this time by Serge Postigo, who signed the successful productions Mary Poppins and Footloose the previous years. The dragon François Lambert even took the opportunity to share a beautiful piece of news: he is in a relationship! The businessman revealed to EnVedette.ca that he was with his sweet name Marilyn Cantin for two months now, and that he has the pleasure of working with her, since she is a communications specialist.
Obviously, the story of Fame would not be such that we know it without the talented young people who populate it, and the course of these prodigious students is not without recalling the parallel destiny of the participants of La Voix. The big winner of the sixth season, Yama Laurent, was in good company with his accomplices Miriam Baghdassarian and Carl Miguel Maldonado, with whom she had confided to us to have created very strong bonds during the last months.
A special mention also to the look of the always very glam Karine St-Michel OD Bali, which, true to what she showed us in her web series, is still conquering the celebrity to avoid falling into oblivion. Let’s say that the narrative thread of Fame speaks eloquently to this bold company!
The musical comedy choreographed by Steve Bolton will continue his performances throughout the summer at Théâtre St-Denis. For tickets and for all the information, it’s right here!
