Think of the Cleveland Play Houses weeklong FusionFest
as a performing-arts buffet, featuring some of the areas tastiest new work. On tap are special performances of the Play House political satire Lincolnesque, Daniel Beatys one-man play Emergence-See!, and Trumbo: Red, White, and Blacklisted, which stars The Man from U.N.C.L.E.s Robert Vaughn. Dobama Theatre (which presents the world premiere of Lunacy), Karamu House (which hosts a reading of the musical The Funkentine Rapture) and Verb Ballets (which dances Dreamweaver) also get in on the action. Plus, jazz trumpeter Dominick Farinacci and salsa group Sammy DeLeon y Su Orquestra headline concerts. Many of the productions run simultaneously at the Play Houses Bolton, Brooks, and Drury theaters.
