Purple Rose Theatre Company in
Chelsea presents The Meaning of
Almost Everything, the 15th play
written by PRTC founder and actor
Jeff Daniels, Jan. 10-March 9. With
elements of slapstick, vaudeville,
tragedy and farce, the show questions
the nature — and absurdity — of our
world. $27-$42. Show times and tick-
ets: (734) 433-7673;
performancenetwork.org .
The Hilberry Theatre will mount
the Michigan premiere of the new
play Detroit, a Pulitzer Prize finalist
by playwright Lisa D'Amour, in reper-
tory from Jan. 11-April 5. D'Amour
chose the title Detroit — even though
the script describes the play to be set
in a "first-ring suburb" outside of any
mid-sized American city — because
of "something about the way the name
of that city vibrates in the American
imagination [and] evokes this kind of
iconic anxiety around the crumbling
American dream:' she has said.
Previously produced in London,
New York (Off-Broadway, where
David Schwimmer co-starred) and
Chicago, the play's Hilberry produc-
tion, directed by Lavinia Hart, will
instead be set in the first ring of
residential homes on the outskirts
of downtown Detroit as two Detroit
residents, Mary and Ben, welcome the
arrival of their new neighbors, Sharon
and Kenny, who have just moved
into the vacant house next door. The
play — described as "an ecstatic, dan-
gerous new comedy" — details the
relationship that forms between the
two couples and threatens to unravel
their lives. D'Amour will participate
in post-show talkbacks on Jan. 31 and
Feb.l. Tickets: $12-$30. Show times
and tickets: (313) 577-2972; hilberry.

THE ART SCENE

Currently on exhibit at the Detroit
Institute of Arts through June
16 is Motor City Muse: Detroit
Photographs, Then and Now. The
exhibition includes the works of select
photographers — including Swiss-
born, Jewish American photographer
Robert Frank — who, for more than
70 years, have found their inspira-
tion from the people, city streets and
automobile culture of Detroit. Frank's
images were particularly inspired
by the city's factories, drive-ins and
diners from 1955, and are part of a
Guggenheim-funded grant for a two-
year journey across the U.S. to photo-
graph all strata of society. From 28,000
shots, he included 83 in his most
famous work, 1958's The Americans.
Free with admission; admission to the
museum is free for Wayne, Oakland
and Macomb County residents. (313)
833-7900; dia.org.
Note: If you're a fan of Lincoln, the
sure-to-be-Oscar-nominated film by
Steven Spielberg, check out the DIM
new installation of American art that
explores the themes of the Civil War,
Abraham Lincoln and the abolition of
slavery. The works will become part
of the permanent collection galleries
in the Richard A. Manoogian Wing of
American Art.
