An Old Maid to Marry

Review by Sue Gallant

On the evening I visited Le Village de l'Acadie to review the Acadian dinner-theatre presentation, La Cuisine à Mémé, the cast seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as the audience, and the standing ovation eventually awarded the beaming actors up on stage taking their final bow, was justly deserved. They worked hard for a solid three hours or more.

Fodder of Comedy


Tourist Trap

Review by Patrick Ledwell

The main question in my mind before seeing Lorne Elliott's "Tourist Trap" at Victoria Playhouse was how well his comedy would survive the loss of its main weapon: Elliott himself. In his live shows and popular radio series, he marches himself into service as his own comedic cannon-fodder. The persona is a floppy-haired genius of misfortune, able to locate

It's Only Us Up Here


50 Years of Farquharson Around

Review by Sarah Crane

Catherine McKinnon and Don Harron invite audiences into the Carmody Comedy Barn in Stanley Bridge three nights a week this summer, for a nostalgic look back at their prolific careers in 50 years of Farquharson Around.

From the beginning, a casual atmosphere is established when latecomers are told to, "Come on in! It's only me up here." A casual

Worth the Drive


Here on the Island

Review by Patrick Ledwell

I was almost late for the performance of "Here on the Island" at the Jubilee Theatre in Summerside. Rather than taking the shorter, inland Route 2 on the drive out (as good reason and time permitting would dictate), I found myself putting on a turn signal for the meandering road that outlines the South Shore's red-cliffed coves.

The decision turned out

Luc Beausejour

Review by Isabelle Gallant

This season, the Indian River Music Festival hosted harpsichordist Luc Beauséjour for the first time. The Montréal musician played a concert of harpsichord favourites on a beautifully-decorated, custom-made French instrument. The large audience at St. Mary's Church on the night of July 13th was extremely appreciative of Monsieur Beauséjour's joking nature

Lionhearted


Chor Leoni

Review by Anne Bergstrom

From the opening processional by the forty male voices of Vancouver's Chor Leoni to the second encore, a large audience at St. Mary's Church in Indian River sat enchanted. Founder and director Diane Loomer is an expert at drawing the best in tone quality, intonation, pianissimo, and enunciation from her singers-in six languages.

The choir members "love to sing

Amazing Gracie

Review by Treva McNally

Gracie Fields was born in 1898 in England and she was a recording star, a film star, and at one time the highest paid entertainer in the world. However, she is unknown to most people born after 1950. Fortunately, Pamela Campbell and Nancy Beck have chosen to reintroduce her in their new show, "Amazing Gracie" playing every Saturday until August 30 at the Arts

Eight Thumbs Up

Eight to the Bar

Review by Treva McNally

Back in 1978, the Confederation Centre presented Eight to the Bar at the MacKenzie Theatre for the first time. It was writer Stephen Witkin's first big hit, and he has since gone on to win the Richard Rogers Award for his current musical show on Broadway, The Fabulist. Eight to the Bar was a good show then and now, twenty-five years later, it is still a
