Return to 'Escanaba'

Over the Ledge tackles Jeff Daniels' venerable farce

Captain hookup & I.C.U. naked

by Amy Alkon
Q: My boyfriend’s mother has been in the hospital for several weeks. She is slowly progressing but still isn’t doing well.

Turn it down

by Rich Tupica
Lansing Parks & Rec Rocks Lansing Parks and Recreation is hosting its free summer-long "Concerts in the Park" series at parks across the city. On Wednesday, The Hoopties play Quentin Park on the south side. The band dabbles in blues, country, zydeco, reggae and old soul. The Hoopties' debut CD, "It Ain't Never Been Easy," dropped last September. The band includes veteran vocalist Twyla Birdsong, Jason Strotheide (bass), Aaron Holland (guitar), Andy Callis (piano, organ, accordion, sax), Eric Payne (drums) and James "Mocha" Waller (sax, harmonica, percussion). Organizers of the concert series encourage guests to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. All concerts are held Wednesday evenings. A couple of the other upcoming park shows include the Lansing Concert Band at Riverfront Park on July 4, and The Sea Cruisers at the Turner Dodge on July 18. For more information visit lansingmi.gov/parks.

Mill Supplies' mad makeover

Artist Tiffany Klein launches a gallery and workshop in a 102-year-old downtown Lansing building

by Lawrence Cosentino
Klein, a Lansing-based artist and interior designer, needs a laboratory more than she needs a gallery. In her hands, plaster becomes velvet, fiberboard turns into wood and PVC pipes aspire to the glory of Roman columns. Her wall-sized, multimedia art glimmers with gemstones and mirror shards, with frames made of textured cement.
