Song and Story


HERE on the Island

Review by Sean McQuaid

Prince Edward Island doesn't have that many enduring theatrical shows. There's the Charlottetown Festival's Anne of Green Gables, of course-and for the better part of a decade, there was her twisted doppelganger, Annekenstein, courtesy of the late, lamented Off Stage Theatre; but apart from Lucy Maud Montgomery derivatives, few Island theatre entities can

Spirit Food

Words and Music

Review by Ivy Wigmore

When you think of amusements for a sunny summer afternoon, thoughts tend to gravitate towards pleasant ephemera: strolling the boardwalk, lolling in the sun, or reclining in one's nearest approximation of a shady bower, juicy novel and frosty gin and tonic at the ready. Should the natural world begin to pall-perhaps on the approximately three (3) days of the

Soul Music

Fire

Review by Sean McQuaid

As the old rhetorical riddle asks, what does it profit a man to gain the world but lose his soul? The musical Fire more or less asks the same question...and while the answers aren't pretty, it makes for a powerfully memorable evening of theatre.

Written by Paul Ledoux & David Young and directed by Richard Rose with musical direction by Donald Fraser, Fire is set in

Of Mice and Murder


The Mousetrap

Review 
by Sean McQuaid

Ever experience déja vu? Your dreaded chronicler has had his share of it over the years, and it's a feeling that flares anew upon viewing ACT's recent production of The Mousetrap, staged at the Carrefour Theatre in late May and early June. It's a lovingly lavish adaptation of the classic Agatha Christie play, but there's something oddly familiar about the

Laughing in the Thrones

Menopositive!

Review by Treva McNally

Women who are in the throes of menopause (and those who live with them) might be surprised to know that their condition can actually be funny in the hands of playwright J.J. McColl. And when Pam Stevenson, Catherine McKinnon, Virginia O'Brien and Laura Smith get together on stage, hot flashes, irritability and aging are hysterically funny.

Menopositive!

If You Could Read My Mind

Review by Sean McQuaid

The Charlottetown Festival has been good to great musicians over the years. A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline was one of the MacKenzie Theatre's most popular and longest-running shows. More recently, the Festival mainstage played host to Stan Rogers-A Matter of Heart. This summer, the Festival is toasting another great Canadian singer-songwriter with

Insane in Georgetown

Minnie McGee

Review by Sean McQuaid

Ah, Georgetown. Seat of scandal, village of villainy, burg of...bad stuff. Actually, Georgetown’s a sweet, sleepy little postcard of a place most of the time, but it did play host to a sordidly sensational trial in 1912. That’s when St. Mary’s Road resident Mary “Minnie” McGee was convicted of poisoning her six children to death. Now, ninety years later, Minnie

Festival acadien de Charlottetown

Review by Monique Lafontaine

Charlottetown was definitely the place to be on PEI the weekend of May 17 to 19. And what a weekend! If there were ever any doubts in the minds of the organizing committee, they are long gone. Months of planning paid off. From the official opening at the Carrefour de l'Isle-Saint-Jean during which local performers such as Réal
