Tableau D’Hôte serve up One Night

Tableau D’H

Tableau D’Hôte Theatre has proved that it deserves to be taken seriously and watched closely as a company that will surely be a major presence on Montreal’s independent theatre scene in the near future.

With One Night, it has produced an original adaptation that looks professional in nearly every way. Each design and production element, right down to programs and posters, is quite beautiful.

The actual show is somewhat more uneven. The two-person cast features dancer Véronique Gaudreau, who is wonderfully expressive without saying a word, and actor Eric Hausknost, who can’t muster up the vocal ability to capture all the nuances of the poetic text. Nevertheless, there’s a lot to like about the show, not the least of which is Tableau D’Hôte’s potential as a company.

One Night plays at Studio Hydro-Quebec, Monument National until April 7. Tickets: 514.871.9883.
