I’ve been back in Toronto since mid-April. It’s a great time to watch the city transform into summer, however we have had an unusually cold spring. As I write this it is a chilly 10C and there’s been light rain all day.
Last week was my first venture out of town; one of several I’ll make to the lovely city of Stratford, Ontario. It’s just slightly over two hours driving one way.
The city is home to the exciting Stratford Festival. one of the greatest classical theatres in North America. This year marks my fortieth year of attending performances there. Thursday I attended performances of The Three Musketeers and Blithe Spirit. There’s nothing like some Noel Coward to end your day with a smile.
I’ll be back before the end of June for two more productions, and probably several times more before their season ends this fall.
This looks like a good year for a summer road trip. Over the coming months I’ll be in Cleveland, Fort Wayne, Saint Louis, Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Little Rock. More to come, for sure.
