Go to the Redford Theater for a Great Show!
May 02, 2010

We loaded up the car and drove to the Redford Theater in Detroit yesterday and watched a $4 matinee of "Singin 'in the Rain" on the glorious big screen.

What a theater!

It's designed like a Japanese village with lovely faux-depth and a starry night (with clouds and flickering stars overhead).

An organist rose up thru the floor to the stage and played a half-hour before the show.

Man, that Gene Kelly can dance!

The Argentinian Tango Group of Detroit entertained us at Intermission.

What a fun day out!

(The fun didn't end after the show, neither -- we hung out in Royal Oak with friends -- and got to see a wonderful garden studio and a livingroom magic show -- then went and found Johnny Cupcakes who showed up at the 323 Gallery en route on his first nationwide van-based Trunk Tour selling t-shirts. Lucy and Henry are t-shirt entrepreneurs themselves so they wanted to meet a pro. It was cool hangin' with so many diminutive hipsters for awhile!)
