The most popular shows on my site for the period of Aug. 6 -12*.
*as ranked by Google Analytics pageviews
Two shows that opened in May continue to receieve consistent attention from readers. One a musical, 42nd Street, the other Shakespeare, Cymbeline.
Pirates of Penzance, which has received the most “mixed” reviews of the 5 listed shows, continues to garner attention. I wonder if the reviews are affecting attendance.
The Matchmaker (opened June 2), which has received consistently excellent reviews, didn’t make the list. The show is a solid piece of work, but perhaps doesn’t inspire the curiosity that drives people to search reviews.
Incidentally, over 80% of the traffic to StratfordFestivalReviews.com comes from people searching broad terms like “Stratford Festival” or “Stratford Festival Reviews”.
