The Broadway of Ann Arbor

The Mendelssohn The-
atre, tucked away in the
hack of the second flour
of the Michigan League,
opened in May 1929
with the opening of the
League, according to the
theatre's website.
Throughout its exis-
tence the theatre has
played host to shows that
later went on to be per-
formed on Broadway.
The theatre gets its
name from Lydia Men-
delssohn, the mother of
Gordon ,Mendelssohn,
who donated $50,000 to
erect the theatre.
During the Great
Depression, the Univer-
sity's Women's League,
which was responsible for
the upkeep of the build-
CRIME NOTES

log and the theatre, went
bankrupt and the Univer-
sity took over operation
of the theatre, according
to Barry LaRue, senior
performance halls opera-
tions manager for Univer-
sity Produsctions.
LaRue said though
there are many theatres
on campus, the Men-
delssohn has a unique
character.
"Various theatres that
we have represent a wide
variety of architectural
styles that allow people to
choose the right venue,"
he said. "(But) some
things just fit in Men-
delssohn perfectly."
Today, the theatre is
used for academic events,
as well as theatrical

performances from the
School of Music, Theatre
& Dance and Ann Arbor
Civic Theater, according
to Jeffrey Kuras, direc-
tor of University Produc-
tions.
Kuras said when he's
been a part ofperform anc-
es at the Mendelssohn he
could "tell that people
have been moved."
"People refer to the
Mendelssohn like a per-
son," he said.
Kuras added that
University Productions
encourages students to
see shows at the Men-
delssohn by charging
$9 for student tickets as
opposed to $24 for gen-
eral admission.
