“The good thing is that we did add nine performances so we should be able to get everyone in,” said Jungle artistic director Sarah Rasmussen.
Mixed Blood was back on with “Mermaid Hour: ReMixed” after a Saturday cancellation.
“It’s not fair — we’ve paid our dues on winter this year,” said Mixed Blood founder and artistic director Jack Reuler. “I just hope we can skip spring and go straight to summer.”
