Since its inception, Dead Man's Shoes has received a national new play award, coverage in American Theatre Magazine, the elusive 4-star review from the Detroit Free Press, and loads of other positive reviews. With only 5 performances remaining, Shoes is coming to a close, and we don't want you to miss out on this extraordinary show.
Dead Man's Shoes will close on Sunday, April 8, with no possibility of extension.
P.S. Yet another review, this one from the Oakland Press, has praised Shoes. Read it here!
Artist Spotlight: Mark Rademacher
featured as Rothko, in Red
Mark Rademacher last appeared at Performance Network during the spring of 2011 in Circle Mirror Transformation, playing, if you can believe it, a very inexperienced actor. Previous to that, he appeared in The White Rose, Molly Sweeny, Quartet and How I Learned to Drive, for which he won the Detroit Free Press Award for Best Actor.
Mark has also appeared at the Planet Ant Theatre (Best Dramatic Performance, Oakland Press), Meadow Brook Theatre, and at the Jewish Ensemble Theatre (with his current co-star, Kevin Young), among others.
Born in the same hospital on the same day, neighbors Jamie and Jordan are lifelong best friends until a twist of fate (and ankle!) separates them. This hilarious musical tale teaches children about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and healthy friendship - both important for long lasting happiness.
Coming Soon... RED ALL OVER: A Community Art Project
During a scene of John Logan's Red, Mark Rothko and his assistant discuss all the things that the color red represents to them -- lipstick, a heartbeat, the feeling of a sunrise.
Red represents something different to each of us. But, if we bring them all together, can we create one thing, representing our community?
Leading up to the opening of Red on April 27th, Ann Arbor residents will notice canvases scattered around town at some favorite hot spots including Zingerman's, Arbor Brewing Company, and the Michigan Theatre. We invite you to contribute your own expression of Red, as we create a community art show.
The finished canvases will be on display in the PNT lobby, during the run of Red.
Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up-to-date with where you can visit the canvases!
