Movie Night

Skin Flick

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Fun fact: Comic book publishers of yesteryear discouraged their scripters from using the word "flick." See, the comics' typical hand-lettered allcaps font, coupled with cheap printing methods and pulp paper, posed a risk of the "L" and "I" blurring together such that "FLICK" might become a less family-friendly word. 

Recalling that, the title of Norm

Popalopalots 26-hour Improv Marathon

Reviewby Sean McQuaid

Your semiconscious scribbler slept sparingly this past Easter weekend, thanks in part to the Popalopalots improv comedy troupe. In 2016, the group improvised for 26 hours straight as a fundraiser for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and they did it again on March 30-31 this year to raise more money for the QEH.

Most of the original marathon’s

Super serenades

PEI Symphony Orchestra

Review by Ivy Wigmore 

On April 15th, the PEI Symphony Orchestra presented “Tenor, Horn and Strings” as the final performance of its 50th season. As we settled in, PEISO musical director Mark Shapiro asked for a show of hands to see how many of the audience had ever been serenaded or, conversely, had serenaded someone else. Not many, was the answer. That was about to

Dynamic direction

PEI Symphony Orchestra

Review by Ivy Wigmore

On March 4, the PEI Symphony Orchestra presented “Dvořák 8 and More” under the direction of guest conductor Dinuk Wijeratne.

I love watching how conductors interact with the orchestra and Wijeratne is particularly fun. Described by the NY Times as “exuberantly creative,” the multi-talented composer / performer / conductor was physically almost balletic

The Sunset Limited

McFadden2 

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Two McFaddens enter, one leaves. Not as grimly gladiatorial as it sounds, but still an accurate summary of the spectacle on offer at The Guild this January, where accomplished father-son acting duo William and Corin McFadden starred in AMS Entertainment’s production of The Sunset Limited, directed by Mahdi Selseleh. 

Written by acclaimed long-time

New perspective

PEI Symphony Orchestra

Review by Ivy Wigmore

The Canada 150 performance had me seeing the PEI Symphony Orchestra from a whole new perspective—from behind, to be specific. In the second concert of the PEISO’s fiftieth season, the orchestra collaborated with many diverse elements. One was the Confederation Singers, of which I am a member.

Soooo…the choir has been working hard and I promised this

Shop Shape

The Shop Around the Corner

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Until recently, I’d never visited The Shop Around the Corner — which is weird, since it sits at the intersection of two of your old-timey opiner’s favourite avenues of entertainment: Christmas stories and Jimmy Stewart movies. 

The original 1940 film’s been on my cultural to-do list for ages now — I’ve even had a copy of the movie

PEI Symphony Orchestra with Ten Strings And A Goat Skin

Review by Ivy Wigmore

Sold out! Those are the words you want to hear about the first performance of a symphony orchestra’s 50th season—unless, of course, you were trying to get last-minute tickets for the PEISO’s October 15 concert, Beethoven ‘Eroica’ & Ten Strings And A Goat Skin, presented under the direction of conductor Mark
