A Lovely Concert

A Lovely Concert
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

Sans Doute
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

What's Cooking?

Why Not?

by Treva McNally

Is it just my imagination or have cooking lessons become the latest form of entertainment? Classes seem to be popping up everywhere, including the community rooms at SuperStore and Sobeys, at Community Schools and at the Uncommon Grocer, and there are probably more because I didn't look very hard to find those ones. Many classes are free, although several cost $5 and a

Great Garden of the Gulf Exhibition

Review by Sean McQuaid

The eighth annual Great Garden of the Gulf juried exhibition was unveiled in April, showcasing thirty works of art by assorted Prince Edward Island artists in various media. I had already seen all thirty pieces and then some, having hovered in the background with my notepad during the adjudication of the hundred-plus works submitted for

The Madding Crowd


Riot Diaries

Review by Sean McQuaid

As a left-leaning, bleeding-heart, status-quo-questioning political junkie, your faithful reviewer was either the best or worst possible choice to review Riot Diaries, depending on your perspective; this new play is a collection of character sketches built around the anti-globilization movement in general and the 2001 anti-FTAA protests in particular. Part

Anne Unplugged


TNB's Anne of Green Gables

Review by Sean McQuaid

Sending an average Islander to see a new version of Anne of Green Gables is not unlike sending any reasonably well-rounded adult to see the latest version of Hamlet or A Christmas Carol or some other universally familiar classic; in either case, you've experienced the story so many times in so many different incarnations that it's already an

Henry's Witty Barb

Wit

Review 
by Sean McQuaid

Margaret Edson’s acclaimed play, Wit, is built around a situation that sounds more like an ordeal than an entertainment: the lingering demise and soul-searching of a woman dying of cancer. Edson’s frank and funny script, however, transcends its grim subject matter to craft an engaging and often blackly amusing character study of a person coming to grips with both her
