“`The famed Oregon Shakespeare Festival that attracts folks from around the world has lost two million dollars this summer, because wildfire smoke forced it to cancel more than two dozen outdoor performances. The fest in Ashland, Oregon had to cancel twenty-six outdoor performances beginning in July and running through earlier this month. That is more canceled shows than in five previous seasons combined.

“`The Tony Award-winning  Oregon Shakespeare Festival is one of the oldest and most iconic professional nonprofit theaters in the nation. It offers outdoor showings of Shakespeare’s plays performed in a venue similar to what his contemporary audiences would have experienced, but it also offers other types of theater in indoor performance halls.

“`The fest has previously dealt with wildfires. Climate change has now extended each wildfire season and makes blazes bigger and more destructive, threatening to make air quality worse. Not included in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s calculations is how much revenue was lost from would-be tourists who simply stayed away, given the smoky conditions.

“`Next season, organizers of the fest plans to open an alternate indoor venue from July 30th to September 8th — peak wildfire season.


“`Dunkin’ is dropping donuts from its name. Donuts are still on the menu, but this branding change will reflect their increasing emphasis on coffee and other drinks, which make up sixty percent of its sales. The name change will officially take place in January. A new logo will still display Dunkin’ Donuts rounded orange-and-pink color scheme, which they have used since 1973.

“`Dunkin’ joins other companies that have recently altered their brands, including KFC and IHOP (IHOb).

Until next time>                               “never forget”
