After high school, Solomon, now
applied to the University of
Minnesota, which had just initiated a
BFA program he thought would be a
perfect fit. Minneapolis also is home
to the Guthrie Theater, but Solomon
admits to envisioning the city as little
more than a ho-hum town.
Quickly, though, Solomon "had a
lot of my blinders taken away" He
also realized that good theater is

No Senior Citizen Discount with any daily specials


f you're a New Yorker who dreams
of a career in theater, there is, of
course, no place you would rather
learn the craft than ... Minneapolis.
Sid Solomon was a Brooklyn kid
who fell in love with acting — and
headed off to the University of
Minnesota. The move was, he admits,
"fairly counterintuitive for anyone
who wanted to be in theater." But like
any truly good play, this seemingly
curious twist began a brilliant path.
Next weekend, Solomon will appear
in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and
A Comedy of Errors at the Berman
Center for the Performing Arts in
West Bloomfield. It likely never would
have happened without Minneapolis.
Solomon was 14 when he audi-
tioned for the High School of the
Performing Arts in New York City.
His sisters had attended high schools
specializing in math and science, and
Solomon initially considered focusing
on science. But his real love was the-
ater, and his parents encouraged him
to attend the school, where, his father
said, "at the very least, you'll learn
deportment, how to speak and how to
look someone in the eye."

A Comedy, A Tragedy,
A Passion For Theatre

ince graduating Yale's MFA
program in 2001, the paint-
er Kehinde Wiley has made
no secret of his black identity. For
much of the last decade, his work
has been boldly Afro-centric, and
in a distinctly subversive way.
He re-appropriates the regal por-
trait form of the Old Masters. But
instead of casting European aris-
tocrats as his subjects, he paints
black urban youth; hoodies and
baggie jeans are what we see, not
breeches and silk stockings. In the
backdrop, Wiley adds vibrant colors
with arresting geometric patterns,
adding ever more visual pop to
these already pungent portraits.
Wiley is only 34, but already his
trademark style was beginning to
tire. So when he announced not
long ago that he would travel the
