Greetings from the desk of Vince Paul
Ballet mania kicks off the month with a double-header of that unmistakable Russian style. Sleeping Beauty is followed by Don Quixote (yes, all on the same day!) and by the time we get to May 2nd you may just be able to do some pirouettes and grands jetés of your own.
Our urban-theatre tradition is carried on early in the month with four performances of Je’Caryous Johnson’s ‘Married But Single’, all but sold out last time we looked. War and the Average White Band bring us back some of those amazing soul funk sounds from the 70s on the 14th, and fasten your seatbelts because 3Fifty Terrace is gearing up for the grand season re-opening on the 28th. Skyline Saturdays is back, along with Skip Fridays and OnDeck Sundays, and just talking about it makes us excited for a great, great summer.
Working ahead just a bit, don’t miss the one and only Smokey Robinson on June 10! One of Detroit’s major hometown legends with so many hits it’s hard to know where to begin, Mr. Robinson’s catalog is practically synonymous with Motown and we are thrilled to have him on our stage once again.
There’s a ‘DONATE’ button at the top of our homepage, and we are humbled by the gifts that have arrived since our capital campaign went public. Thank you for your generosity and for sharing our love of this great, great place.
