In Perfect Harmony

Borealis String Quartet

Review by Patrick Ledwell

Johannes Goethe once observed, “I call architecture frozen music,” and in many ways, you can see the century-old St. Mary’s Church in Indian River as this metaphor made real. During the performance I attended, I could easily imagine my surroundings as the outcome of a musical moment crystallized and then scaffolded with wood, the melodic lines

Opening Night

Something Wonderful

Review by Andrew Sprague

There’s always something in the air on opening night at the Charlottetown Festival. Everyone’s dressed to the nines, smiles and handshakes abound, and the mood is one of excited anticipation; not just for the show, but also for the party afterward. From the moment you walk in the front door the energy in the room lifts your own. It’s an eclectic mix of

Cultural Alchemy

Acadie en Musique

Review by Patrick Ledwell

As a ship captain announces in an opening scene, the performance “Acadie en Musique,” playing throughout the summer at the Carrefour Theatre, is a voyage charged with an impossible mission. The show aspires to celebrate and somehow capture the soundtrack to 400 years of Acadian history, a task made no easier by the embarrassment of musical diversity that

A Swell Salute

Broadway Heroes: A Salute to the Great Leading Men

Review by Joseph Sherman

The best audience for Broadway Heroes will recognize all the tunes in this warm cabaret show, unless they stopped listening to the music—spanning roughly 85 years—just as Andrew Lloyd Webber was enthroned. Assembling such a show would mean determining what to exclude, and this show’s pivotal jam-packed medleys suggest that

Ghosts and Demons

The Woman in Black

Review by Joseph Sherman

Why are solicitors writ so vulnerable…the English kind? Or is it that they are just being picked on? In Dracula, one Jonathan Harker, all self-confidence and innocent keenness, is dragged into a milieu of toothsome evil. In The Woman in Black, one Arthur Kipps, all self-confidence and innocent keenness, is dragged into a milieu of…something akin. (Though

Mature Content


Review by Jane Ledwell

A sign at the ticket desk for “Sketch-22” warns of “mature content.” The sign refers to the show’s racy elements—comedy that relies on swearing, violence, sex, or drugs. But “mature” can be understood more than one way…

If you are not easily offended, “Sketch-22” is hilarious. I wore myself out laughing. I was just disappointed that “Sketch-22” alienated part of

The Yearly Reunion

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

Spring was tough and far too long. It rained, and it was cold. People were complaining about it, maybe just a little more than usual. Even the mosquitos and blackflies sought shelter. It took until mid-July for summer to really hit this year. Luckily, it came just in time for one of the finest social events of the season. It’s one of those events that, for me,

Grand Opening

I'm Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

It was supposed to be the grand opening of Thirsty’s bar in Cavendish... It was about seven thirty Friday night and I had just returned home from an after-work pint at my usual after-work joint, The Churchill Arms. I had a real urge to go out so I called my friend Rick. He was sitting at home playing guitar. When asked what there was to do he had an immediate
