"Detroit '67" with the Detroit Public Theater
May 26 2016
Detroit Symphony Orchestra
The centerpiece of Detroit Public Theatre’s inaugural season is the Michigan premiere of Detroit ‘67. In DETROIT ‘67, award-winning Detroit playwright and DPT Advisory Board member Dominique Morisseau takes the audience on a journey to 1967 in the city of Detroit. Motown music is getting the party started, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. But when a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over much more than the family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the '67 riots. The Detroit Orientation Institute and Detroit Revitalization Fellows at Wayne State University are partnering to facilitate post-performance dialogues for each show.  “Detroit ‘67” runs through June 5, 2016, with performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. and matinees on Wednesday and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20-$45 and are available online, by phone at (313) 576-5111, or in person at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra box office. All performances take place in the Robert A. and Maggie Allesee Rehearsal Hall inside the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center on Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Detroit Public was founded by Courtney Burkett, Sarah Winkler and Sara Clare Corporandy and is bolstered with board and advisory members made up of theatre luminaries from across the nation and Detroit.
