Dirty Dancing

Reviewed by , November 5, 2015

Nobody puts Baby in the Corner!

The movie Dirty Dancing, with the very hot and incomparable Patrick Swayze and sweet young Jennifer Grey, has a huge following. It was the surprise hit of the 1980s and has gone on to become a favourite even with those who weren’t born when it came out. So the stage show has tried to copy the movie exactly to keep those devoted fans happy.

The production now on stage at Budweiser Gardens in …

All The King’s Women

Reviewed by , October 30, 2015

Elvis Presley was an icon of popular culture that became so much more after he died, regardless of whether he deserved that kind of worship. This play is an amusing look of the lives of several women reacting to this star that can range from the interesting to the pathetic, depending how much you know about the life of Elvis.

As much I personally consider Elvis Presley overrated as musician, his impact on North American culture is without question. As it is, this play reflects that with …

The Conchologist: A Dream of Edgar Allan Poe

Reviewed by , October 23, 2015

Edgar Allen Poe was one of the great gothic literary masters with a fertile imagination that not only created great tales of horror, but also a new kind of hero with the detective story. This play is an imaginative, if rather leaden paced, examination of this great writer’s life and inspirations.

On October 3, 1849, Poe was found in Baltimore, badly delirious and in dire medical peril for unknown reasons (although abduction by cooping thugs has been suggested). In Poe’s remaining lingering days, unconscious from this trauma, he experiences a surreal …

Tickling the Ivories and the Funny Bone

Did you hate it when you took piano lessons and your mother forced you to practice for one full hour every night? Or did you pace the hallway, straining to hear the piano notes through the closed door as your son struggled with his conservatory exam? If you’ve lived through either of these experiences, you’ll appreciate 2 Pianos 4 Hands.

2 Pianos 4 Hands is a funny and touching musical comedy currently on stage at the Grand Theatre. The story is semi-autobiographical, written by Richard Greenblatt and Ted Dykstra, two Canadian actors/pianists …

Steel Magnolias

Reviewed by , October 12, 2015

As much as I try to avoid assuming stereotypes, for some women a beauty salon is better than a church confessional. It offers all the chance to get their troubles off their chest without the moralizing and you look better in the process. This play is a heartwarming and witty dramatization of such an environment and the women who use it.

In Chinquapin, Louisiana, Truvy Jones (Sookie Mei) runs the busiest beauty salon around and has taken on Annelle (Andrea Hutchison) as her new assistant. At the salon, Jones has a regular clientele who are …
