Maybe it\’s just coincidence that this year\’s Ottawa Fringe Festival features fewer dramas than usual but lots of musical, clownbased and dance shows. Or perhaps a lighter touch is what we need just now, what with clamorous protesters clogging streets and cheerless economists slashing government budgets at every turn.
One way or the other, the festival, June 14 to 24 in a dozen downtown venues, offers its usual enticing mix of local, national and international artists.
