Greetings from the desk of Vince Paul
Happy New Year from all of us at Music Hall! We have an incredible lineup of great shows this month to get everyone out of the cold and into their groove.
If you’re a kid, you might know by now that you can find your groove here. Our Family Theatre Series is growing in popularity by the day. It’s a top-shelf collection of classic tales staged by dedicated touring companies, and the shows are known to captivate the parents and grandparents just as much as the kids. Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia is a star in the field, and on the 15th they bring us ‘Brown Bear and Other Treasured Stories by Eric Carle’.
‘Live Lit Laughter’ on the 21st promises big laughs to lift you out of the winter doldrums, with six crack-up experts on hand to poke every possible funny bone. The Hall will soar with music this month too. Luis Resto and his musical collaborators will share their explorations of new territory in the Jazz Café on the 27th, and the astonishing Gregory Porter takes the main stage on the 29th. With the 2014 Grammy on his shelf for Best Jazz Vocal Album, Mr. Porter is breaking through and touring the world. Tickets for this are being snapped up quickly so don’t delay in placing a call to box office: 313-887-8500.
Cheers and thanks to all who have made year-end contributions to our performing arts education outreach – music, theatre, and dance to inspire and empower Detroit’s students!
As always, "I'll see you downtown"
