Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire?

While the city continues to recover and reconnect after last weekend’s storm, the good news is there are some summer classics to look forward to this weekend.

Theatre Review: Calpurnia at the National Arts Centre

Barb Popel: “I was eager to see Calpurnia. So too, obviously, was the audience on opening night. It was the first night of the “Rolling Thunder Ottawa” motorcycle convoy and the NAC building was in the middle of the police “Red Zone”. Nevertheless, there were quite a few people in the audience. Most of the audience laughed at the funny bits, especially in the second act, and almost all of the audience gave the actors a standing ovation.”

Weekend Roundup: Quoi faire?

With daylight savings bringing an extra hour of sunshine to our wakeful time and the promise of light at the end of our workday, we hope this puts a little spring in your step ahead of the official change in seasons next weekend. There is plenty to do with that bit of extra pep this weekend, so without further ado, we give you: the Weekend Roundup.
