REVIEW for Anne of Green Gables the Musical


A thank you goes out to Fitzhenry & Whiteside LImited for sending me this great companion to the Anne of Green Gables legacy!
TITLE: Anne of Gren Gables the Musical
101 Things You Didn't Know
AUTHOR: Don Harron
GENRE: Non fiction
RATING: 4 Stars
I am a huge, huge fan of anything associated with Anne of Green Gables or more specifically, Lucy Maud Montgomery. I also had the opportunity of seeing this ongoing play in Prince Edward Island (PEI is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen) a few years ago.
I was absolutely thrilled when I found out that this book had been published and WOW! there is so much "unknown" little tidbits in this book that I could not put it down. Loaded (and I mean loaded) with stories, directly from the mastermind of the play, Don Harron - he covers everything and I do mean everything you may ever want to know about the creating, putting together, presenting of this long running stage show. I was particularly interested in any stories concerning casting and the actors, but I also found out many, many things that I had no idea about.

There are also tons of pictures and this is an absolute "must" for any fan of AGG and the stage show.
Highly recommended.

Oh wow this sounds great! My daughter is also a huge fan of Anne of GG. She had the full set of books and the series of DVD's. This would make a nice gift.

Oh, I would LOVE to see the musical version of Anne of Green Gables! I love the behind-the-scenes books, even when I have not seen the play. There's so many interesting and inspiring stories. :)

Anne is one of my absolute favorite characters!

Tina, I saw this musical too when I was in PEI (2000) and it was beautiful. I am a huge fan of Anne of Green Gables and I did almost everything Anne when I was in PEI. I should bring you my pics at the next meet up. LOL
