Holiday theater options
In Ann Arbor and Detroit, it's going to be an ei

By Melissa Rose Bernardo
Daily Theater Editor
Since today is the last day of the
Daily in 1995, and your source for
theater information will be a distant
memory until the dog days of Janu-
ary, here's a little list to keep pinned
to your mittens. So next week when
you're sitting around with nothing to
do, or performing an unbelievable act
of procrastination, think theater. And
hey, it can be a cheap holiday gift.
Here's the roundup for Ann Arbor
and the Detroit area.
Ann Arbor
TONIGHT! Yes, tonight! Get thee
to the Friars concert. Wacky, happy, a
cappella fun from your favorite sub-
group of the Men's Glee Club. They
sing, they make jokes, they dance
(well, sort of), but most of all, they
entertain. Their Annual Study Break
concert is at 8 p.m. at the Power Cen-
ter. Tickets are a mere $6 at the Union
(763-TKTS). For that price, you can
afford to bring a date - or two.
This weekend: More wacky fun,
but this time it's Victorian - cour-
tesy of the University of Michigan
Gilbert and Sullivan Society. They
present "The Grand Duke" tonight
and Saturday at 8 p.m., plus Saturday
and Sunday at 2 p.m. at the
Mendelssohn Theater. At the paltry
sum of $5, you can afford to see it

Next weekend: "Les Liaisons
Dangereuses," or - for all you non-
French speakers -"Dangerous Liai-
sons." Under the direction of BFA
Performance student Camilo
Fontecilla, the Medea Theater Troupe
has put together a fine cast for this
Christopher Hampton play. Just $6
for students at the Trueblood Theater;
the Union's got the tickets for next
Thursday through Sunday at 8 p.m.
And get on your toes for "The Nut-
cracker." The Ann Arbor Ballet The-
ater, along with the Michigan
Sinfionetta presents the classic holi-
day dance set to Tchaikovsky's mu-
sic. You won't want to miss Musical
Theater student Job Christensen in
the lead role of the Cavalier. That's
Friday Dec. 15 and Saturday Dec. 16
at 8 p.m., plus Saturday and Sunday at
2 p.m. It'll run you $15, but it's well
worth it.
Go, go, go Joseph! That's right,
folks - Donny Osmond is here as
Joseph in the Andrew Lloyd-Webber/
Tim Rice musical "Joseph and the
Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat."
And all I can say is - it's amazing
how 15 minutes of music can be
stretched to an hour. Donny is pretty
neat, though, especially considering
he spends the bulk of the show pranc-
ing around in not much more than a
diaper. Tickets run $20-$60 for per-

are merry
ntertaining December
formances Tuesdays through Sung,
days, and it's there through January.
Call (313) 832-2232.
"Shear Madness" doesn't even be-
ginto describethe romp you'll have if.
you go to the Gem Theater for thil
audience participation-murder mys-
tery. You write the ending in this
madcap whodunit set in a hair salon-
And you'll never see the same show'
twice. "Madness" happens Wednes-
days through Sundays; tickets range
from $16-$24, a bargain for the fui
you'll have in the cozy Gem. Call,
(313) 963-9800.
If you've got rhythm, you'll love,
STOMP at the Fisher Theater. Back
for a limited engagement through Dec.
17 (following last year's smash sell-
out), the British percussion group will
entrance.you with their explosive, in-
fectious synchronized sound. You can
get into the beat Tuesdays through,
Sundays, for $22.50-$30. Call (313)
And a new local music release that
you'll definitely want to check out:
"Falsettoland" has been recorded by.
the cast from the recent Basement
Arts production. The William Finn-
James Lapine musical was in superior
vocal form in the production, and
promises to make a great transfer to
CD. They're $15, and proceeds go to
Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS:
Hey, makes a great stocking stuffer!
