Lightwire: The Show
The tallest bird most people have seen is the aptly named Big Bird, who measures a little over eight feet. But in Lightwire Theater’s new production, birds the size of two-story houses traverse the stage alongside sword-fighting cats and aliens outfitted with the teeth of prehistoric tigers. It’s all part of a family-friendly battle between good and evil, set to a live soundtrack and illuminated by electroluminescent wire rather than stage lights powered by Shakespearean soliloquies. The project was imagined by Ian Carney and Corbin Popp, who—along with their wives Eleanor and Whitney—constructed the glowing characters. Fresh off an appearance on America’s Got Talent, they’re also behind the lauded DiNO-Light and The Ugly Duckling, two shows they’ve transported to theaters around the globe.
There's usually something entrancing to see on Chrysler Theatre's stage, but there's always a captivating view from its walls of windows. The building sits along the Detroit River, with a prime outlook on Detroit's skyline. Twelve hundred red seats fill the auditorium, stately and comfy in equal measure. The Chrysler is part of St. Clair College, which has a robust musical theater department to fill the stage when it's not hosting touring shows.
