The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Cleveland Stories Dinner Parties

Wed., April 25

Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is a weekly series that pairs fine food with storytelling. Through it, the folks at Music Box Supper Club hope to raise awareness of the mission of the Western Reserve Historical Society's new Cleveland History Center. The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to "bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland's past — from sports, to rock 'n' roll, to Millionaires' Row," as it's put in a press release. Admission is free, with no cover charge, although a prix fixe dinner, designed to complement the night's theme, is $20. Doors open at 5 p.m., dinner is served at 6, and the storytelling starts at 7. Tonight, Big Fun owner Steve Presser shares stories of the hippie invasion of Coventry, during the 1960s, from his days of running the popular toy store in Cleveland Heights. Dinner includes Cream of 'Shroomies soup, pot roast, and a Cosmic Brownie Sundae. (Niesel)

The Humans

Wed., April 25

Part of this year's KeyBank Broadway Series, Stephen Karam's The Humans takes place over the course of a Thanksgiving family dinner in a ramshackle lower Manhattan duplex.

Tonight's performance takes place at 7:30 at Connor Palace. Tickets are $10 to $80, and the play's run continues until April 29. (Niesel)
