Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth
At the press conference for the Broadway debut of his one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, directed by Spike Lee and penned by Tyson's wife, Lakiha, "Iron" Mike revealed what may be the show's most appealing element: he doesn't pull any punches. Not about his dire financial circumstances, his tempestuous relationship with his ex-wife, his promiscuity, or even the tiger-stripe tattoo that hugs his left eye like a shredded crescent moon.
Now set to grace venues across the country, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth reveals the new Mike, a man who has come to terms with a checkered past that includes family tragedy, incarceration, drug addiction, constant public scrutiny, and an early life spent fighting in some of the country's most rough-and-tumble rings. Dashed with humor and presented with lighthearted, albeit profane, aplomb, Tyson's narrative invites audiences to spend an evening in the ringside seats of his mind, without the fear of being struck by an errant haymaker or dislodged mouth guard.

The F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts
Over 35 years ago, the Wilkes-Barre community banded together to restore the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts to its former glory as the Comerford Movie Theater. They referred to old pictures for recreating the carpeting and wallpaper, while also painting the ceiling in a decorative Art Deco style. And in case the red velvet seats, lobby chandelier, and sepia ushers weren’t enough to transport audiences back to 1938, the renovated venue opened by showing Alexander’s Ragtime Band, the same film that christened the Comerford. Today, the F.M. Kirby Center upholds its tradition of entertaining the masses with concerts, film screenings, plays, and standup comedians.
