“The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast.” – Oscar Wilde

October brings cooler weather and Halloween. It’s a shame we have to wait until the end of the month to get all scary. There are several shows lined up to scratch that spooky itch. Also, many shows from last month are ending in early October leaving you plenty of time to see a few produced by smaller companies before the ‘big guys’ come back at the end of the month.

Go see something – it’s good for you.
