Australia’s “Thunder from Down Under”
The appeal of “Thunder from Down Under” is straightforward: handsome Australians riling up the crowd with their dance moves and flagrant shirtlessness. But the show has a charm beyond its six-packs and broad shoulders. For two decades, the blokes have entertained ladies on the Vegas strip, and now tour the world with a show the Las Vegas Review-Journal praised as having “a down ‘n’ dirty immediacy”—despite all its spectacle. Dashing pirates commandeer the hearts of audience members, and Roman warriors shed their armor piece by piece in a realistic recreation of the Battle of Tifernum. Time-traveling gangsters engage the eye in and out of their ’20s suits, disco makes a very adult resurgence, and guests take part in a sudsy, sultry car wash.
Kalamazoo State Theatre
"Save the State": that was the rallying cry in Kalamazoo in 1982, as local arts groups and city officials spearheaded efforts to save the historic Kalamazoo State Theatre from demolition. And it was more than just a building the community sought to save. Since it first illuminated its marquee in 1927, the State Theatre had hosted countless vaudeville acts, operas, big bands, and bands with tiny drums, and had served as a cultural fixture for the city. Fortunately, the campaign worked. The venue was purchased in 1985, and after undergoing renovations, the State Theatre once again began housing entertainment ranging from rock concerts to live comedy for the citizens of Kalamazoo.
