Doing Leonard Cohen

"Poetry in motion" said the Globe & Mail of this multi-layered homage to the incandescent Mr. Cohen.

The ensemble reprises this play which features some 50 poems from early works like Death of a Lady's Man and The Spice Box of Earth, as well as an extended treatment of the novel Beautiful Losers. Along with its sultry yet aggressive movement, the hallucinatory stream of consciousness captures the erotic and sensual qualities of Cohen's finest poetic voice.

Put on your bell-bottoms and Greek sandals, then get set to revel in the sexy 60s as only Leonard can-and did.
