Belles Soeurs: The Musical hits the jackpot – and Germaine Lauzon WANTS IT ALL! Raucous, reckless and hilarious, Michel Tremblay’s iconic Québecois play is now an outrageous English-language musical. Working-class housewife Germaine Lauzon wins one million trading stamps and invites family and friends over to celebrate. But pride + greed = envy! The women complain aggressively, overshare shamelessly, fantasize freely while secretly covet Germaine’s precious stamps. Crackling with electricity and performed by a powerhouse cast and musicians, Belles Sœurs arrives on the national stage following rapturous reviews and sold-out crowds at its recent world premiere in Montreal.

Did you know?
When it first premiered in 1968, Les Belles-Sœurs set off a storm of controversy when it dared to portray working-class women doing working-class things. Since then, it has been translated into more than 30 languages and is the most produced Québecois play of all time.
