I went to see Lenny Gallant's show "Searching for Abegweit" truely an amazing show. The show ,music ,stories and artwork gives you a real feel for Prince Edward Island .I think everyone who sees it leaves being a Lenny Gallant fan. The whole show from start to finish is a great and well worth seeing.

Attended the "Abegweit" concert. Seating (and neighbors at the table) very pleasant. Perfect setting for this event.

Nice convenient central bar is very handy. Fast entrance and seating once the doors opened a half hour before show, quick exit after show.... More

I am from Florida, and regularly bring tourists to PEI. When I had the chance to see Lennie Gallant on a free evening in Charlottetown I jumped at the chance. Wow! What an experience. I will never forget his beautiful voice, the gorgeous paintings and the hospitality of my fellow theater-goers. Don't miss this, it is a truly PEI experience.

We just saw Lennie Gallant's "Searching for Abegweit" here and have enjoyed other shows here in the past. The stage is set in front of many round tables with chairs and viewers can enjoy a beverage while they watch the show. My only concern is the volume level, which is very loud, but unfortunately, that seems to be the way... More

Outstanding show in an intimate venue. Lennie Gallant and his team (mostly other family members) did a brilliant job of portraying the history of Acadien culture on PEI. All seats are excellent and the bar is handy. Don't miss this show.

We saw Lennie Gallant: Searching for Abegweit here and I really liked how close your were to the performance. This is an old theatre that has been converted to a table set up with a bar at the back. While arriving early will give you a better chance of get seats that naturally face the stage, the chairs aren't fixed... More

This is an intimate and charming old theatre and was a perfect venue for the Lennie Gallant show, Searching for Abegweit. It was such an entertaining mixture of stories about his growing up, the history of PEI, his music, and his sister's art. I knew his music a bit, but he was so funny and personable, and such a versatile... More

We saw Lenny Gallant there - a staple on the PEI and Canada circuit and this is a great place to see a show. Lenny was great too. 6 people to a table so you may sit with a tourist or local - which is half the fun. The bar is another matter. I was going to order a beer,... More
