On the Way Up
Profile: Colin Buchanan

by Jane Ledwell

Sometimes people want stories like a warm cup of tea—and that is powerful in the right dosage,” says musician Colin Buchanan, who is now a newly minted theatre co-writer and director with the production of Story at The Guild. He adds a “however…”: “Storytelling is often a lament for the past, or we’ve looked at the past with rose-coloured glasses… We wanted something with

The Dating Scheme

Review by Chris McGarry

The night I attended the St. Peter’s Courthouse Theatre a large audience had gathered to watch the hilarious, well-acted production The Dating Scheme. The Dating Scheme, directed by Jonah Anderson, is the story of sisters Peggy (Tanya MacCallum) and Sally (Veronica Powell) who learn that their best friend Sarah (Jeana MacIsaac) has just broken up from a committed r

Searching for Abegweit

Review by Chris McGarry

On a Monday evening in July, a capacity crowd gathered at the MacKenzie Theatre to watch Searching for Abegweit: The Island Songs and Stories of Lennie Gallant. In Searching for Abegweit, Juno-nominee Gallant, one of PEI’s favorite sons, weaves a superb, heartfelt narrative of the historical tales of our fair isle through story and song. Against a haunting b

A Genuine Treat
The Drowsy Chaperone

Review by Chris McGarry

On a Sunday in June, a capacity crowd gathered inside of the King’s Playhouse in Georgetown to watch Bob Martin and Don McKellar’s hilarious musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone. The play is a show within a show; it begins with the Man in the Chair (Nicholas Whelan) telling the audience about his favorite 1920s musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. He’s a bit of a sna

Review by Dave Stewart

I can’t recall the actual wording of the request from The Buzz when I was first asked to review Off the Cuff Comedy Presents: Ladies & GentlemAn. I can, however, tell you what I heard: “How’d you like to review a new sketch comedy show with a hard-to-remember name performed by four recent musical theatre graduates/ triple threats? It’s playing at 11 pm on a

Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™

Review by Luke Arbuckle

How does one properly review a play that’s been on the stage for 50 years? Perhaps the longevity of the production speaks directly to its quality and should be considered above all else. That being said, the cast and crew of Anne of Green Gables—The Musical™ have done it yet again, half a century after the first production.

There can be no

The Meaning of Storytelling
Story

Review by Sean McQuaid

Your aged analyst has a long history with David Weale productions, dating back to when the inimitable Ed Rashed and I briefly served as roadies for a touring production of Weale’s very first storytelling stage show, A Long Way from the Road. Our only remuneration was our supper and a lift back to Charlottetown, but we enjoyed the show—as did PEI audiences. Weale spent muc

Island Summer Review

Review by Ivy Wigmore

On a recent summer Saturday night, my husband and I headed out of town to see Patrick Ledwell and Mark Haines’ Island Summer Review. Out on a clear July evening, 26 degrees, driving through velvety green and rolling hills, the promise of a full moon on the way home. Not too bad.

“Not too bad” is phrase that Ledwell explains as key to understanding Islanders. (As

The Ballad of Stompin’ Tom

Review by Sean McQuaid

Your crusty chronicler admires the persistence of playwright David Scott. By his own account, Scott pestered Canadian music icon Stompin’ Tom Connors into helping him create a musical based on Connors’ life and music, wearing him down with a series of letters until the living legend acquiesced.

Five years of development later, The Ballad of Stompin’
