This multimedia presentation preview really brought the Hopkins’ published program vividly to life – just like a movie trailer for the upcoming season.
It was very well done by Margaret Lawrence, the Director of Programming for The Hop. She was impressive. I couldn’t find too much about her on the Web but I suspect that she has some thespian in her. Her summaries of each act, done without continually looking at notes or using a teleprompter, were succinct, incisive, insightful and revealing. As some one who has done a ton of public speaking I appreciate those that can present information from memory. Well done.
I learned a lot about performers and acts that I had seen in the Program but was not familiar with.
The British “The Tiger Lillies” was one. They look like a load of (adult) fun.
The kids were suitably impressed with this DJ Trio: “A Tribe Called Red“. Since I can pass as Navajo among Navajo (albeit when I am closer to 190 than 165) I am quite partial to this music too. It is a standing room only jam. We might go.
So this was just a start. I won’t go through all the acts in this post. I will hit them sequentially over the weeks.
But some shows are already selling out!
So, you better check the Program and do so quick.
