Good Things Come in Threes


Theatre New Brunswick productions at the Jubilee Theatre

Review by Sean McQuaid

Three girls and three guys. Sounds like the latest uninspired TV sitcom, or maybe the roster for an especially unambitious orgy. In actuality, though, it's a lazy reviewer's shorthand for the casts of Theatre New Brunswick's two latest touring productions: The Attic, The Pearls & Three Fine Girls and The Drawer

Cultural Exchange

The Mikado

Review by Sean McQuaid

With its January-February 2001 production of The Mikado, the classic Gilbert & Sullivan comic opera, ACT (A Community Theatre) serves its audience a saucily surreal slice of ancient Japan, generously garnished with sprinklings of present-day Prince Edward Island. It might not be the most seamlessly satisfying mixture since peanut butter and chocolate, but it's

Seasonal Spectre

Ethan Claymore

Review by Sean McQuaid

Ever since Charles Dickens sicced a trio of sensitivity-training spirits on Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, the concept of ghosts on a Christmas mission of redemption has been an enduring part of our culture; but while many subsequent writers have conjured their own Yuletide phantoms over the years, few have managed to create something distinctively entertaining

Left Done Right

A Left Hand Adventure

Review by Sean McQuaid

"A Left Hand Adventure" (a trio of one-act plays staged by Left Hand Theatre at the Arts Guild on October 18-21) is a small wonder: Outside of Me, Sleep Tight and Cowboy Mouth all employ small casts, minimal sets and modest production values to craft compelling short stories of people at odds with fundamental truths, with each other, and with

What the Fred?


ACRONYM

Review by Sean McQuaid

Are you tired of life making sense? Were you one of those kids who loved to torture insects or small animals? Do you like your theatre weird, spooky and nigh-unto-incomprehensible? If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, ACRONYM might well be your hallucinogenic cup of tea.

Written and directed by Mickey Acorn with technical direction and stage

Have Wand, Will Conjour

The Conjuror's Suite

Review by Sean McQuaid

Theatre is alive. While seldom as visually spectacular as its cousins film and television, live theatre offers an unmatched immediacy and, at its best, a sense of wonder. Nothing taps that sense of wonder more effectively than a magician; an artist who not only performs before in the presence of an audience, but whose performance consists of amazing and

Stake and Cheese

Dracula The Undead

Review 
by Sean McQuaid

Since its genesis as Bram Stoker's 1897 novel, Dracula has been endlessly resurrected through a host of imitations and adaptations in various media, firmly establishing Count Dracula as the definitive vampire character . In fact, the story has been revived and revamped (sorry) so many times over the decades that any new version faces some scary

Put on the Spot

4Play

Review by Kelly McLean

Have you ever been thrown into the spotlight with all eyes on you, waiting for you to perform? That must be how Rob McLean, Matt Rainnie, Rob MacDonald and Ed Rashed feel every Monday night this summer when they perform 4Play Live Without a Net at the Charlottetown Arts Guild. It's two hours of unrehearsed, hilarious comedy.

These actors have no lines to rehearse or
