Robert Lepage and his sister Lynda Beaulieu pose with mock tickets for shows at Le Diamant.

As the Pink Floyd song says: “Shine on you crazy diamond.”

In this case the “diamond” is Le Diamant, the dazzling new $57-million performing arts centre in the heart of Quebec City; and “crazy” is how Lynda Beaulieu, sister and business partner of famed director Robert Lepage, describes how the project may have been perceived when the two first pitched it 15 years ago.
