The sun is beating down and all sorts of mixed media shows are delighting the cities. There are dance shows made famous by TV dazzling the stages. Tribute acts honouring American legends like Dolly Parton are thrilling people. The contemporary dance shows filling the local Playhouses are forthright in their ability to mix media like theatrical dialogue next to acrobatic skills and yet it all makes sense. Even though the weather is beautiful there are many good reasons to be in a darkened room with the highlights on offer in our cities.
