After a three year hiatus, Rufus and Martha Wainwright are bringing Noel Nights back to their hometown – Montreal.
For two nights, Dec. 21 and 22, at the venerable theatre MTelus, the Wainwright/McGarrigle Christmas show returns with family, friends and fabulous guests.
Besides Rufus and Martha en famille, the show also features Michel Rivard, Patrick Watson, Elisapie, Ariane Moffatt, SafiaNolinand Tire Le Coyote, not to mention the great Anna McGarrigle.
Described by The New York Times as “typical Christmas-time family gathering motley, convivial, multigenerational, jokey, affectionate and tinged with both skepticism and faith,” the Christmas show has been a family tradition since 2005 when Kate and Anna McGarrigle released their classic album, “The McGarrigle Christmas Hour.”
Gold Circle tickets (@$250) include a meet and greet and holiday gift bag. The show will benefit Stand Up to Cancer Canada, which recently named Martha and Rufus as their Ambassadors. The SU2C Kate McGarrigle Fund is a new collaborative program from Stand Up To Cancer Canada and the Kate McGarrigle Foundation that aims to provide music therapy resources to cancer patients with a passion for music, as well as much-needed funds for sarcoma research.
Don’t miss out, join us for this festive, fabulous holiday tradition…the perfect kick-off to your season, and a wonderful yuletide gift for you and your family.
