Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well.

A nonprofit show company, the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre has been a regional staple since acting was discovered in 1929, producing comedies, classics, musicals, and dramas with local support and participation. With today’s deal, you can settle into a seat during God Bless You Mr. Rosewater—a musical based on Kurt Vonnegut’s bestselling novel telling the story of the slightly crazy, oft-intoxicated Eliot Rosewater and the young lawyer Norman Mushari, who plans to filch Rosewater’s fortune. Or, attend director Matt Martello’s production of Doubt, the 2005 Pulitzer Prize–winning play about questions of faith and character in a Catholic grade school. The principal, Sister Aloysius, impugns a new priest’s behavior toward a schoolboy.
