Ok… this isn’t about Ottawa per se, but Montreal is such a short drive away I felt I had to mention it. Starting tomorrow there is a musical opening about Schwartz’s Deli – the famous Montreal landmark that has been serving up smoked meat sandwiches since 1928.

According to the CBC: Schwartz’s The Musical is set in the late 1990s, when a businessman from Toronto tries to buy Schwartz’s and franchise the business. Stephanie Martin plays the role of Amber, who’s sent from Toronto to Montreal by her boyfriend businessman to check out its potential.

What fun! The musical runs until April 24 at Centaur Theatre.
