Alive and Well

Anne of Green Gables —The Musical™

Review by Pan Wendt

For a musical that features an overexposed icon, not to mention loads of sentimentality, this show is still pretty fresh, especially if you bring your six-year-old daughter along. It’s tough to beat the catchy tunes and general up-up-up, and Jennifer Toulmin makes the best Anne I’ve seen, often dominating the proceedings with her calisthenic

The restuarant knew I was considering doing an article, and I had a feeling my money would be no good. But today, I’m glad I did it, because it ended up being a dining experience I will never

Sisters Helping Sisters


Marion Bridge

Review by Jane Ledwell

Uh oh,” I thought when I read a plot synopsis of “Marion Bridge.” “I’m afraid I know where this play’s headed.” We’ve seen enough, read enough, heard enough, lived enough dysfunctional Maritime family drama to know the master narrative—humour and despair underscored with unemployment, alcoholism, violence, and/or sexual abuse. There’s often not much subtlety to
