The Original 2005 Canadian Cast Recording starring Marla McLean and Peter Deiwick.
The new musical, which had its world premiere at the intimate Edwardian-era Victoria Playhouse, about 30 minutes outside Charlottetown on Aug. 4, is a heartwarming, tear-inducing, thoroughly satisfying production that will delight Anne's kindred spirits and newcomers to the charm of the Island's most famous resident.
Based on the novels Anne of Avonlea and Anne of the Island (published in 1909 and 1915), Anne & Gilbert focuses on the relationship between the heroine and the man who everyone but Anne can see is destined to be the love of her life - a relationship that began when 11-year-old Anne broke her slate over Gilbert's head when he called her Carrots.
