The cultural-events calendar runs counter to weather: Instead of getting cooler in the fall, it heats up. I mean, it’s Orlando – it’s not like we trade in our beach towels for pearls and minks coats and go get our opera glasses polished – but still, fall is when the major cultural offerings of the year get underway, and this year is a doozy. Mad Cow Theatre has settled nicely into their new home on Church Street, Broadway Across America Orlando scores a coup with Book of Mormon, and Orlando Ballet presents a Tribute to director Robert Hill; new and modern classical and jazz from Timucua White House and Accidental Music Festival joins the tried-and-true favorites steadily presented by our Orlando Phil. We’re even slowly gaining ground as a tour stop for edgier young comedians. Here’s your menu for fall’s performing-arts smorgasbord.
