Woodstock

Few of us today experienced the historic moment when it seemed that all of hippiedom was gathered at Max Yasgur’s farm in Bethel, New York.

Half a million people showed up! But how many of us actually remember Woodstock? Blue Met presents a Woodstock revival, with the collaboration of the slightly madcap members of our very prestigious honorary committee.

Literary yet quirky, the show will revisit the protests of the era, evoking the memory of Woodstock’s iconic singers, musicians, and poets, right down to their psychedelic tie-dye attire.

From Jimi Hendrix to Joni Mitchell and Janis Joplin, with a detour that will include Michel Pagliaro and the zany poetry of Raôul Duguay, Blue Met’s Woodstock promises aims to be just as entertaining as the original, without causing any damage on rue Ontario!
