Six Appeal

It’s All in the Timing 

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Your scattershot scribe enjoys short-form compilations. Whether it’s old Disney “package films” like The Three Caballeros and The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad or vintage anthology comic books like Adventure Comics and 100-Page Super Spectacular, I’ve always liked variety in my entertainment. 

My hankering for patchwork

Tears for Two

Grace and Glorie 

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Your past-his-best-before-date playgoer has always had a soft spot for older folks, even as a youngster. Living more or less next door to my wonderful maternal grandparents might have had something to do with it, but it’s also been a long-recurring element in my favourite entertainment.

Festive Special

Festive Special
P.E.I Community Theatre Festival  

By Sean McQuaid 

Before we were dating, my future wife reportedly described me to her best friend as “the dense one.” Seems I was slow-on-the-uptake in some respects back then. Decades later, this year’s PEI Community Theatre Festival proved that little has changed in that regard.

Farewell

PEI Symphony Orchestra

Review by Ivy Wigmore

On April 23, the PEI Symphony Orchestra finished its 49th season in fine style. Well, “fine” is quite an understatement, really. I’m sure if I surveyed audience members as they exited, “fine” would not be a word chosen to describe the performance. “Amazing” would probably be the general consensus, with some variations along the lines of “astonishing”

Sean Aylward redefines the barbering business

The New Creative
by Cassandra Bernard

The Humble Barber, Sean Aylward, says his business is about more than just trimming beards. The barbers in these shops work hard to craft and shape to suit their customers’ lifestyle and comfort levels.

The first of the two shops opened in April 2015 in Summerside, and then expanded to Charlottetown in January

The challenge of Burger Love

#TryThisAndrew
by Andrew Sprague

Another Burger Love has come and gone. The 2017 edition featured a whopping 84 burgers at restaurants across the Island. It was a behemoth. Hundreds of cattle paid the ultimate price to ensure kitchens in more than a dozen communities kept pace with the roving masses of burger enthusiasts. The list of burger photos was nearly three feet
