Tommy’s unexpected resurgence

I’m a little late with this week’s update. I must admit I’ve been enjoying the US Open…a lot.

No surprise with the top two most popular shows this week, but “Tommy” makes an unexpected appearance in 3rd place. The show closes Oct. 19th and there are still some great tickets left for the remaining performances.

Below are the most pop­u­lar pages on the site for the period Aug. 24 to Aug. 30th

#1 – Merchant of Venice
#2 – Othello
#3- Tommy

Most pop­u­lar restau­rant review
The Church was the most popular restuarant on the site. This might have been because it was a popular spot during the final week of The Stratford Summer Music Festival.
