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 Lion in Winter

Review by Jane Ledwell

What shall we hang? The holly or each other?” asks Eleanor of Aquitaine coldly in The Lion in Winter.

The summer of 2014 brings to life the winter of 1183 and a fictional Christmas court of the leonine King Henry II (John Dartt); his mistress Alais, who is beginning to assert her place (Leah Pritchard); his three sons, the youthful and weak John (Alex

Like a Hurricane
Like a Hurricane
Canada Rocks!

Review by Jane Ledwell

During post-tropical storm Arthur, my daughter and I stepped out of the roar of wind and into the fancy new seats at the Confederation Centre for the roar of Canada Rocks! We half-expected Neil Young’s “Like a Hurricane” to be added to the playlist, but there wasn’t room for one more song in the fully loaded 74-song revue. The cross-country playlist of Canadian hits is

by Jane Ledwell

When Andrea Ellis was a child, she didn’t tell her parents she wanted to be a firefighter or an astronaut. She said, “I want to work in concerts.”

She laughs, “I guess as a child I was always keen on music, and I was interested in concerts… The whole experience intrigued me, but I’m not sure what I imagined was entailed!” Whatever it entailed, the accomplished and foc

Film-maker Harmony Wagner thought filming Victoria Park crows would be the easiest part of her short film, Queen of the Crows. “They’re so abundant down there, I didn’t think it would be a problem,” she says. But when the time came for writer/director Harmony and her partner, producer Jason Rogerson, to weave them into the narrative of a story about an Island family

Charlottetown has got the blues on Saturday afternoons. It has for a while and is likely to continue, as long as the “Got Blues” collective of blues musicians keeps hosting winter Saturday afternoon jams with special guests at The Globe on Victoria Row (and at The Factory while The Globe is under renos). If you can say there’s a “blues scene” on PEI, musician Chris Rou

Rebecca Parent smooths her dress before sitting, a ritual she’s getting accustomed to. She is 15 days into “150 Days of Dresses,” which Rebecca and her creative co-conspirator Laurie Campbell have undertaken to promote What to Wear to the Birth of a Nation. They are co-creating, co-writing, co-producing, co-directing, and co-starring in this sesquicentennial two-w

As a human race, we dance. It’s an impulse—a basic, natural impulse to move,” says Peggy Reddin. It has been several years since the dance umbrella co-founder’s role at Confederation Centre of the Arts flowered into a role as Director of Arts Education, also working with Holland College-Confederation Centre partnership School for Performing Arts (SOPA).

I want the life of my dreams,” says David Cyrus MacDonald with world-embracing verve. “And I feel very fortunate that in many ways I do have that. I love being in my band (Paper Lions), having a creative outlet. I love making life on PEI better (with my sponsorship company, Confederation Entertainment).”

Pick a month and play a game: How many listings in The Buzz include drummer Alan Dowling? “In the course of a year, I play with at least a dozen totally different groups,” he says. It’s a steady, hectic rhythm: “In a one-month period, I might do country, rock, jazz, blues, and drumline (marching drums). That might be a typical month.”

Alan loves variety. “I love t

In Ontario, what was one in a million here is one of a kind,” says Laura Cole of her chosen Island home, where she settled almost ten years ago first in Pinette and then in Charlottetown to pursue her passion for craft and creation.

“We came here to retire…someday,” she adds with a wry smile, in the busy studio/office where she creates glass-on-glass mosaic and works

I’ve had a lot of different jobs, and most of them feed into my work here in the cinema,” says City Cinema owner Derek Martin. “I’ve been a stage manager for theatre, and I know about making sure a show is running on time, managing a crowd. I’ve worked in a supermarket, so I know all the pop bottle labels should be facing out, and to check the best-before dates,” he says w
