Shame on You

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. In

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.

Carmichael, a veteran

4 Play: A Fistful of Improv

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

Celtic High Spirits


Danú

Review by Joseph Sherman

Donnchadh Gough's a demon drummer. Built mast-high and crowned with a mop of unruly hair, he hunches low over his amplified bodhran and whacks the tar out of it with one of his several tippers. Except there's no tar and his playing is actually the subtlest I've heard, bar Donal Lunny's. Not many drummers can command so much of a concert without alienating even

Stan Rogers: A Matter of Heart

Review by Jane Ledwell

It's probably anathema to admit it, but, as a genre, musical theatre worries me. So as a Stan Rogers fan from away back, I had a sinking feeling about seeing a mainstage musical tribute to the singer-songwriter. So many things could go so terribly, terribly wrong. They could attach a drastically horrible narrative to each of the songs-or worse

2 Pianos, 4 Hands

Review by Treva McNally

When 2 Pianos, 4 Hands was in Charlottetown for a short time in 1997 starring its creators, Ted Dykstra and Richard Greenblatt, I was unable to go and listened enviously to others rave about it. I really wanted to see it as I had taken piano lessons for many years, so when it was scheduled to be at the Mackenzie Theatre in the summer of 2001, I made sure I
