June 13, 2019 at8:00 am - 10:00 pm$25
Lynx Lamour Goes to Nashville is a new country and western musical written and composed by acclaimed Cree playwright Tomson Highway. The show is about Lynx Lamour, a young Cree woman from sub-Arctic Manitoba, who goes out into the world to sing her heart out. Against all odds, she achieves her dreams. The world falls in love and will never be the same.
This project is being developed over the course of three years (2018-2020) through a series of theatre residencies, First Nations community engagements, and artistic and academic collaborations in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Ontario. The song lyrics are performed in Woods Cree.
For one night only, Highway will bring this new musical to Winnipeg at the Tom Hendry Warehouse Theatre on Tuesday, June 13 at 8 p.m. He’ll be joined by Krystle Pederson, Lancelot Knight, Junior Clarke, Liam Allan, Nathan Halcrow and Andrina Turenne. Special guests The Bighetty & Bighetty Puppets.
