Alive and Well

Anne of Green Gables —The Musical™

Review by Pan Wendt

For a musical that features an overexposed icon, not to mention loads of sentimentality, this show is still pretty fresh, especially if you bring your six-year-old daughter along. It’s tough to beat the catchy tunes and general up-up-up, and Jennifer Toulmin makes the best Anne I’ve seen, often dominating the proceedings with her calisthenic

The Gaelic Spirit

Highland Storm

Review by Michael Nesbitt

The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada is showing another side of its personality to audiences attending the Celtic Festival event this year. Highland Storm ­ Voyage of the Gaelic Spirit is a departure from the College’s familiar ceilidh format, in favour of a theatrically-oriented presentation of the origins, development and future of a

Curb Appeal

Review by Pan Wendt

Arranged throughout two floors of the Confederation Centre Gallery’s east wing, Curb Appeal, organized by curator Shauna McCabe, is a grab bag of artistic reflections on contemporary urban experience. From found sounds, slide shows and large-scale photographs, to abstract paintings and works in coloured pencil, the diverse works in the show all revolve around mapping, perhaps

Spoiled Rotten


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I feel somewhat guilty writing this article. So to clear my conscience I’m gonna tell you something up front— the meal was free except for the gas to Rustico and back. The restuarant knew I was considering doing an article, and I had a feeling my money would be no good. But today, I’m glad I did it, because it ended up being a dining experience I will never

Sisters Helping Sisters


Marion Bridge

Review by Jane Ledwell

Uh oh,” I thought when I read a plot synopsis of “Marion Bridge.” “I’m afraid I know where this play’s headed.” We’ve seen enough, read enough, heard enough, lived enough dysfunctional Maritime family drama to know the master narrative—humour and despair underscored with unemployment, alcoholism, violence, and/or sexual abuse. There’s often not much subtlety to

After ‘Setting Day’


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

There’s something about a Sunday drive in the country. It’s relaxing, but at the same time exciting. After all, there’s so much to see down a road you’ve never driven or a path you’ve never walked. About ten years ago a good friend took me for a Sunday drive down a road I’d never seen just outside Murray Harbour. I discovered two things that day; it’s a

Don’t Give Up the Search


The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe

Review by Marianne Dowling

Whether she’s screaming out the angst-filled poetry of a 15-year old punk, stumbling around as a middle-aged drunk, or bragging about high sperm count as a disco-obsessed body builder, Laurie Murphy is consistently fascinating in The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe.

Written by Jane Wagner, the

More Than Mere Music

More Than Mere Music
A first-hand report from Canada Music Week 2005 in Toronto

by Lindsay Kyte

Everyone at Canada Music Week 2005 (CMW) had the same shaggy ’70s style hairdo. The difference was the execs paid Sting’s hairdresser big bucks for it, and the musicians got it by choosing electricity over Magic Cuts.

CMW took place March 2 to 5 in venues all over Toronto. It involved celebrity talks (Mathew Knowles—father
