JUDY: Stonewalled!

Reviewed by , October 24, 2014

JUDY: Stonewalled! was shown to a full house last Friday at McManus Studio at the Grand Theatre.

As soon as the audience enters the theatre, they are inside a vintage bar in New York City. There are three chandeliers on the ceiling and about six strands of Christmas lights of various sizes. The mood is warm and festive, with musicians playing at the back of the stage while the public sits down.

JUDY: Stonewalled! was originally showcased in a bar, and while McManus Studio is definitely not a watering hole, …

Northern Daughter

Reviewed by , October 23, 2014

A person’s roots can define everything they are in ways they least expect. This play is a gorgeous one-person show where Donna Creighton illustrates that truth with evocative stories and songs about life in Northern Ontario.

For a one-person show, this is among the most immersive I have ever experienced, with Creighton providing a wealth of characters on a beautiful canvas of the mind.

Roy LeBlanc, originally from London, is well known in the competitive world of Elvis impersonators. He first won the Collingwood Elvis …

Lost Soul Stroll 2014

Reviewed by , October 7, 2014

With October coming around again, London has another visitation of ghosts telling lurid tales of the Forest City’s past. This year’s version features some vivid storytelling and drama, but is hampered with a radically different venue that dissipates much of the atmosphere of the show.

Starting with an opening act hosted by the ghost of the notorious theatre impresario, Ambrose Small, as he, with his secretary and his sister, playfully attempt to solve the …

Noises Off

Reviewed by , October 5, 2014

Good theatrical farce is an art that can be tough to perform with the wild physicality involved. A finely tuned balance is needed to pull that kind of theatre off without it feeling forced. As it happens, the LCP appears to be facing that kind of struggle themselves and the result is a sincere, but fitfully funny, slapstick comedy show that seems to be a bit overearnest in its efforts.

The crew of the comedy show Nothing On is into its final dress rehearsals, but they are …
