I love Le Femme Mystique's performance's!
I don't understand why the title is listed as "Strip Show" because not everone gets naked...what about Spring Fling Burlesque or something else that makes sense to what they are doing?
We apologize but this event is already sold out.
Wow, look out Hudsonites - there are BLACK PEOPLE in Cleveland Heights!
Check out our newly released video! It will give you a better idea of what Theatre of the Oppressed is, what Forum Theatre is, and more details on what we'll be doing during the workshop. http://youtu.be/9OEwnuIORTc
Fantastic, this is definitely an incredible event for Cleveland.
Please get you facts right before you post about Lifebanc and their policies and procedures before you make ignorant remarks. Your loss is just as important as any one who has lost a love one. However, because of Lifebanc some loved ones live on and live because of them. There is no way I believe the exagerations of your story. I hope you and your family never have to experience a need for a transplant. It would be unfortunate.
solidgold's comments were accurate. How could this possibly be billed as "#1 Stage Play in the Country"? Productions like this damage the Playhouse Square brand.
There were some fine vocalists, but the dialog seemed to be improv-ed as it went, when you could hear it (music background drowning out dialog), body mikes not turned on on time, lousy spotlight handling, flashlights used for scene changes behind the translucent scrim while action continued in front.
With no programs given out I have no idea who is responsible for this, but it was a poor use of the State Theatre.
This is the worst play I have ever seen. The directing, lighting, sound and staging were beyond amateurish. This was a complete waste of money and time. Much of the audience walked out after the first 45 minutes.
tonight is the Christmas New years party - $5.00 to get in... 10$ includes a plate of pulled pork, black beans and rice! A bailar salsa!
Tonight is the Christmas/New Years party... $5 to dance and $10 if you want food included. a big plate of pulled pork, arroz and frijoles negros. :)
The shortest gig on a lengthy extended tour was basically a ripoff from the venue. Hackett is one the finest classic rock musicians and should never have been cut short by that money-hungry casino. The performance was superb and this fine artist should've been able to play his full set list.
7:00PM Doors 8 :00PM Show!
Thank you Ms. Warren for allowing my grandson to play with you last night. He was so thrilled and honor to meet you.
One particularly fine building by Philip L. Small is the original Cleveland Playhouse, now consigned to oblivion, apparently.
The show was good, music was well played, although I am not a fan of the singer. I thought the Rocksino playing commercials for upcoming concerts and events on the 2 jumbo screens during the show was very distracting and inappropriate. Seemed really amaturish, as did the camera work --- when images of the band were on the screens, it seemed that the camera people didn't know which member of the band to spotlight. My rating is 2.5
I was not at all the 'other shows', but Steve played for 2 hrs straight.
Every song was beyond fantastic and one the best shows I've seen in the last 10 years. I guess the previous reviewer had higher expectations of length, but 2 hrs is par for the course for a concert these days. Especially one in the middle of the week.
I also think the venue was pretty awesome. It does not have much ambiance, but I don't look for that at a concert. I think the Q or convocation center are even less ambient, especially when you can see sports stuff in those centers. The Hard Rocks theater had plenty of lights and the best sound I have heard in a while. That what is important to me. The old Agora for instance looked very cool & classic the last 10 years(before they closed), but the sound was one big echo chamber. Nfield sounded great, probably with the help of Hackett's sound guy.
The music was better then anything you might imagine when wanting to hear genesis music. It was not like a genesis cover band. It simply was the music of genesis. As well played by any member of genesis, as well sung by peter or phil. I rate this concert a 9.3 out of 10
I received word from the Hackett camp that the show at the Hard Rock Rocksino was shortened due to "the insistence" by the venue. What a shame fans in NE Ohio were given a lesser show, but not discounted tickets, by a facility seemingly more intent on pushing patrons back into their gambling mecca.
This was the shortest show of the entire tour for some unknown reason. A fine performance, and Mr. Hackett exhibited terrific playing, yet the crowd seemed to know they were receiving a sub par show, and it was a good half hour less in content than other shows on the tour.
The venue itself does the players no favors as it is as vanilla as it comes, with little or no ambiance. It would seem the Hard Rock folks put all their money into the Casino and there was nothing left in the budget for a fitting concert facility.
Overall, the 11 Genesis songs performed were musically top notch, but the fact other shows on the tour have been comprised of 17 songs on average resulted in many fans leaving a lot earlier than they had planned.
Went to see the Local Humor event last Saturday 11/22/14 and much to my surprise we incidentally joined someones baby shower which was comedic in itself. I was told the coordinator has been too busy to organize this event so if you'd like to attend, I'd call Reddstone first unless you want to crash a baby shower.
