Stagecrafters

This event spans the period from 2011-05-20 to 2011-06-12
Book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan Music and Lyrics by Marc Shaiman Lyrics by Scott Wittman Hairspray has delighted audiences by sweeping them away to 1960's Baltimore, where the 50's are out -- and change is in the air. Loveable plus-size heroine, Tracy Turnblad, has a passion for dancing, and wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show." Overnight she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program's reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair? Director: Matthew Miga

MON 2011-05-30
Resurrecting yet another name from Detroit's dining past, restaurateur Joe Vicari says he will open a new version of Brownie's on the Lake this Memorial Day weekend. Brownie's - known for its water views and slips for Lake St. Clair boaters - closed 14 years ago. The new Brownie's will be in the old Jack's Waterfront Restaurant at 24214 E. Jefferson in St. Clair Shores, now being renovated under the direction of Ron & Roman architects in Birmingham. The restaurant will serve lunch and dinner daily and will include space for indoor and outdoor dining, entertainment, dancing, and "the largest docking area of any metro Detroit restaurant," said Vicari, who founded the Andiamo Restaurant Group. The menu will feature a Brownie Burger - the signature item of the old restaurant - but the new version will be made with USDA Prime beef. The menu will be expanded to reflect more modern tastes, featuring fresh fish, salads and pizzas among other items. Vicari is also opening a new version of the long-closed Joe Muer's Seafood Restaurant this September in the Renaissance Center.
