The third edition of The Medicine Show was less rousing than the previous ones. The usual acts could not leverage the elemnt of surprise- the singers & the dancers...even the theatre practioners decided to sing this time.
The wedding band was a suprise touch--the sight of them solemnly playing Muqabla had many of us cracking up.
The staged stand up comedy act did have a twist in its tail...but that was it's only merit.
It may be tough to put up a good show month after month--perhaps a bimonthly would generate more crowds & quality acts.
The venue, too, was not apt...one is tired of sitting on carpets, floors and what have yous for a view of the performances.
