As if ice skaters dressed as Disney characters doing Salchow jumps and spins isn’t enough, Disney On Ice has piled on the spectacle for some eye-popping visuals in “Disney on Ice presents Celebrate Memories,” through Feb. 2, PPL Center, Allentown.
Skaters not only glide on the ice but they fly in the air. And not only does snow fall on the ice, but for one act, a section of the ice explodes in flames. Sparks fly, elaborate seaweed decorations fall from the ceiling and an outrigger “sails” across the ice.

“Jojo Rabbit” is in the tradition of satire that includes the movies of Monty Python (“Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” 1975; “Monty Python’s Life of Brian,” 1979, and “Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life,” 1983), a tradition that goes back at least to the infamous Jonathan Swift essay (“A Modest Proposal,” 1729).
Since “Jojo Rabbit” is, in large part, a satire about Adolph Hitler, its satiric movie predecessors include Mel Brooks’ “The Producers” (1967) and Charlie Chaplin’s “The Great Dictator” (1940).
