Happy Spring!!! Well…almost!?
Starting with the very end of the month (because we’re too excited to save it for last)– the news is that March 31 is the re-opening date for 3Fifty Terrace – our knockout rooftop bar & lounge and definitely one of the hottest spots in town. It’s Tigers Opening Day and booked for a private party, but look for a full schedule of music and events throughout the season!
Another big event is the premiere of a brand-new dance event on the 22nd
:''(313) To The (212)' is a choreographic showcase designed to highlight the major contributions made by Detroit and SE Michigan to the NYC dance scene. You can’t see a Broadway show or a New York dance company that doesn’t have at least one Detroit-born dancer or choreographer, and it’s important to spread the word about Detroit’s excellence in dance. Seven choreographers – 3 from NYC& 4 from the D – plus master classes onstage the next day. Start warming up…
Family time on the 9th
with ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’ – representative of our commitment to bring classic children’s books to the stage. Some cutting-edge jazz on the 20th
as Orrin Evans and his trio drop in to the Jazz Café. Music insiders are excited about this show, as Evans (still inthis thirties) has been nominated for a couple of Grammys and called “one of the most distinctive and inventive pianists of his generation”. Scoop these tickets for $20 bucks so you can say you saw him ‘when’. Also in the Café, on3/21: The Luddites – a 10-piece acoustic band that has won 7 Detroit music awards. Sweaty, sexy, and big fun.
We round out the schedule with a couple of excellent urban stage plays and a generous supply of Detroit talent.
As always, "I'll see you downtown"
