Lennie Gallatn's show is absolutely fantastic. We attended the preview performance but there were few noticeable glitches (violin was a bit raucus for us). What a wonderful evening with a well-deserved standing ovation. Loved the blend of local PEI lore and commentary and the back projection of Karen Gallant's art. I would definitely go again, just brilliant.

IT is a small venue that puts on big shows. The seating is great and the dinner theatre is awesome. Good times had by all who venture in.

Cozy, casual theatre in the heart of downtown. Although you reserve which table, your seat is not assigned so get there early so your back is not to the stage. There is a small bar with reasonable prices but no food to speak of. The best tables are up a step in the back of the theatre on either side... More

Is there a better place than the MACK to see a show? Absolutely NOT! I have seen many shows here and the wonderful venue always delivers. I recently took in the Belle Starr/Jordie Lane show ... another home run in this fabulous space. While the performances (be it live theatre, musicians, Late Night or whatever) are always great, seeing them... More

We loved the Valentine's Caberet. Amazing musicians. I would suggest that if snack food/appetizers were offered it would make a a great addition.

An authentic experience about the challenges facing small rural PEI farmers - weather, 4-lane highway and relationships. Music cleverly woven into the story -a John Deere tractor becomes iconic. Seating at tables in a relaxed atmosphere. Well worth seeing

Very intimate setting for Confederation Centre offerings. Round tables seating 8 people and a small stage for single artists or plays. NOTE: When you book you book a table but not a seat at the table so get there early to select your seat ie. facing the stage and not with your back to it.

good entertainment; local to PEI but not parochial with a focus understood only by Islanders; this sometimes happens that people from away don't know the local colour in our entertainment
