Anne of Green Gables-The Musical™

Review by Aldera Chisholm

My roommate is "from away" and had not yet seen our Anne. So, with tickets in hand, we set off for the Confed Centre for this year's production of Anne of Green Gables-The Musical. Before the play, we agreed that there are three immutable truths about Anne. Meagan Follows is the one true Anne Shirley. Gilbert will always be the ideal man.

Not Too Late

Late Night with The Drill Queens

Review by Sean McQuaid

In my younger days, when free time and waking hours both seemed more plentiful, I was fond of late night talk shows. These days, the curmudgeonly codger I have become seldom watches much late-night television, so it was a refreshing, nostalgic change of pace when The Buzz sent me to "Late Night with the Queens and Friends".

The Origins of Comedy


Barn Agin!

Shame on You
Shameless Hussies

Review by Jane Ledwell

In that other stage show about a Prince Edward Island hussy-the one that plays across the street from the Arts Guild and is in its thirty-gazillionth year-a fiery, uninhibited redhead learns to tame her temper and her tongue to become a spirited-but-proper young lady, with the help of a loving adoptive family and a villageful of gossiping matrons.

Cousins First

Review by Sean McQuaid

Prince Edward Island is a small place, and it often seems as if almost everyone in the province is related somehow or other. This summer, the melodious Margie Carmichael and the ubiquitous Laurie Murphy do their bit to bolster that perception with Cousins First, a variety show starring fast friends and first cousins Laurie and Margie.

Review by Matt Perry

Is there a remedy for the summertime re-run blues? If you're tired of sitting in front of the television or bored of the same old shoot 'em up summer action flicks the Arts Guild in Charlottetown has something for you. 4Play Improv is a great way to spend a Friday evening this summer-and it's entertainment you can control.

Ahead to the Past

Don Messer's Jubilee

Review by Treva McNally

What a difference a year makes! The addition of Bill Langstroth, the original director and producer of Don Messer's Jubilee, to this production has given theatre patrons exactly what they were looking for last year-more Don Messer music. By keeping what was good (Leahy, lots of dancing, the set and costumes) and adding the Jubilee format to allow more
