Dirty Rats

The Rat Pack Crooners

Review by Gena Fisher

Straight from the bar upstairs, ladies and gentleman, may I introduce the Rat Pack: Fred Santora, Dan Larkin and Sunny Mavis are the cool trio of crooners performing live at Vegas by night, and filming their movie Atlantic 11 by day, if they show up.

This summer Eddie May Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre presents, The Rat Pack Crooners at Piazza Joe's in

A Little Maud Music


Songs of the Island

Review by Erin Fagan

In the thick of another PEI summer season, it is deeply refreshing to get a little more acquainted with the woman behind the celebrity of Anne of Green Gables. New insight into the singular imagination of L.M. Montgomery can be found on a summer Sunday evening at the Confederation Centre's Studio Theatre, enabled by the talents of Marlane O'Brien, Hank

Ahoy, Mate!

Adrift

Review by Aldera Chisholm

You have to love any play that involves audience participation. Even more so when that participation comes in the form of dumping water over the actors' heads. For each performance of Adrift, the playwright has requested the role of the "Rainmaker" to be played by an audience member.

Set in the beautiful Victoria Playhouse, Adrift is not your usual romantic comedy.

Late Laughs


Late Night at the Mack

Reveiw by Sarah Crane

Wednesday nights at the MacKenzie Theatre are comedy nights and the slogan for the Late Night at the Mack series tells me "You never know who you might see." One mainstay is host and well-known Island comic Laurie Murphy. The slogan holds true enough for the rest of the show. Murphy leads the audience through an evening of traditional stand-up comedy,

Take a Trip

The Seagals

Review by Andrea McVean

"I think it was Stan Rogers who recognized that farm wives are actually farmers," says Margie Carmichael, as she begins to strum a heart wrenching tale of a farm wife turning her back on the family farm. I feel my eyes well up, as I listen to Carmichael, a seasoned pro who is able to capture the same human spirit that Stan Rogers loved to sing about. It's the

The Legend of the Dumbells

The Legend of the Dumbells
Bittersweet Buffoonery

Review by Sean McQuaid

Old musicals never die...they just get remounted; and in a sense, The Legend of the Dumbells is older even than most of its peers. The musical itself only dates back to the 1970s, but it is based on real-life entertainers whose act was forged under fire in World War One. The Dumbells were Canadian soldiers assigned to stage a musical comedy show for

Dog Days of Summer

Sylvia

Review by Jonathan Stewart

Sylvia begins as the story of a man and his dog and progresses into a comedic reflection on change, marriage, and middle aged life. The play opens with Greg (Erskine Smith), a middle class/middle aged New York office worker, bringing a stray dog home. The stray is Sylvia (Mia Ingimundson) and Greg has no idea what changes his pet will bring. There is an instant
