Channeling the spirit of legendary soul crooner Sam Cooke, veteran performer Darrian Ford escorts listeners down memory lane during an evening of soulfully snappy tunes from the ‘50s and ‘60s. Riffling through Cooke’s 29 Top 40 hits, including “Bring it on Home to Me,” “Wonderful World,” and “You Send Me,” Ford prompts ears to do a double take as he steps into the shoes of one of the century’s most influential entertainers. In front of his music-making compatriots, Ford belts out the songs while kitted out in a black tie and a dazzling white jacket that evokes big-band nostalgia and allows him to escape paparazzi during snowstorms.

####Marcus Center for the Performing Arts During the day, the concrete heights of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts tower over the waters of the Milwaukee River like an imposing, postmodern fortress. As night falls, however, and patrons meander toward their evening's entertainment, the building’s façade glows with colorful, scintillating lights that hint at the eclectic performances inside. The elegant Uihlein Hall regularly hosts such august organizations as the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and Florentine Opera Company, whereas smaller, more intimate venues such as the Todd Wehr Theater situate audiences close to the stage so they can immerse themselves in dramas or hear the wail of a set builder who smashed his thumb with a hammer.
