Jam Sandwich
Million Dollar Quartet

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Her musical's lyrics urge Anne of Green Gables to "never change," and the show's Charlottetown Festival home often seems somewhat simpatico with that advice. Anne's antics return every year, and most Festival seasons also feature at least one jukebox musical. That includes this year's main stage companion to Anne, Million Dollar Quartet

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. 

As a kid, for instance, I always liked the greying

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. 

I’d gone to see the festival’s featured shows and possibly

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”

Seductive

PEI Symphony Orchestra

Review by Ivy Wigmore

Beethoven found himself in sweet and seductive feminine company recently, and not before time: Ludwig van B. was famously unlucky in love. Throughout his life, he seems to have pined for one woman after another, mostly unrequited. Much speculation ensued when a letter was found after the composer’s death in 1827, written—but never, apparently, sent—to

The new Noodle House

Review by Ann Thurlow

Under ordinary circumstances, a Chinese restaurant moving seven blocks would not be big news. But this is Charlottetown and The Noodle House is a beloved spot. It has been ensconced for several years in kind of a ramshackle lot behind the Dairy Queen. So when owner Fiona Zeng found a renovated location available right downtown, she jumped. And she decided while she was at it,

Quest for love

Singing to Myself

Review by Emily Jelliffe

After viewing Harmony Wagner’s film, Singing to Myself, my impression as I stood up to clap with the full house of satisfied viewers was a pulling sensation at my heart.

It wasn’t just the beautiful Jenn Grant song that ran with the ending credits, or the delightful closing scene in the film that moved me. It was the storytelling of two main
