Pedaling Detroit

Author takes a unique look at the beleaguered metropolist

by Bill Castanier
When he was researching his book, "Detroit City Is the Place to Be: The Afterlife of an American Metropolis," Rolling Stone contributing editor Mark Binelli wanted to see a different side of Detroit than the one portrayed in popular media — a side even some of us "locals" have only seen by expressway on our way to see the Tigers, the Lions or a show at the Fox Theatre.

Open secret

Lansing artist collective elevates its profile with open house

Nice 'Girl'

MSU closes theater season with iconic musical

by Dana Casadei
The musical that introduced Barbra Streisand to Broadway still has much of the same charm that enchanged audiences in 1964. "Funny Girl," with music by Jules Styne, lyrics by Bob Merrill, and book by Isobel Lennart, traces legendary showgirl Fanny Brice's path to stardom, from a Brooklyn vaudeville act to headliner of the Ziegfeld Follies — and her roller coaster relationship with husband Nick Arnstein (Will Slanger-Grant).
