Plucking Heartstrings

Stan Rogers: A Matter of Heart

Review by Jane Ledwell

It's probably anathema to admit it, but, as a genre, musical theatre worries me. So as a Stan Rogers fan from away back, I had a sinking feeling about seeing a mainstage musical tribute to the singer-songwriter. So many things could go so terribly, terribly wrong. They could attach a drastically horrible narrative to each of the songs-or worse

2 Pianos, 4 Hands

Review by Treva McNally

When 2 Pianos, 4 Hands was in Charlottetown for a short time in 1997 starring its creators, Ted Dykstra and Richard Greenblatt, I was unable to go and listened enviously to others rave about it. I really wanted to see it as I had taken piano lessons for many years, so when it was scheduled to be at the Mackenzie Theatre in the summer of 2001, I made sure I

The Lost Accord


The Dal Segno Trio: Picasso in Paris

Review by Joseph Sherman

The premise behind Picasso in Paris, presented by New York's Dal Segno Trio (Mescal Wilson, piano; John Kneiling, cello; Stanley Hoffman, violin) is academic, at the undergrad level: if hindsight peepshows an early 20th century Paris beating with the Famous Spaniard's changeable heart, then why not showcase some of the `classical' music

A Very Special Episode

Garret

Review by Sean McQuaid

Ever see commercials for a "very special episode" of a television comedy or drama program? This sort of pitch often heralds a story designed to emotionally address a controversial, painful or topical issue-drug abuse, sexual orientation, suicide or some such thing. Something calculated to push our buttons, engage our sympathies, maybe teach us a lesson.

Garret, staged

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
