Rolling Stones fans revel in world-class replication as “Satisfaction: A Rolling Stones Experience” delivers all of the hits and swagger of rock ‘n’ roll’s longest reigning band. Celebrating its 10th anniversary of rocking the globe, the cast of vocal and visual effigies inhabits the roles of The Beatles’ greatest bullies with aplomb, boasting an unyielding catalog that spans 50 years of classic hits such as “Brown Sugar” and “Start Me Up.” The band owns the stage like a lumber baron in an acclaimed performance, nailing the band’s flashy stage attire as well as Mick Jagger’s howl and signature contortions, Ronnie Wood’s stroke and smirk, and Keith Richards’s blues-inspired licks.
Croswell Opera House has hosted a variety of entertainment since opening its doors in 1866, with a rich history of notable rock stars such as Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Renovations over the last two decades, including an enlarged orchestra pit and a new stage floor, have granted the theater modern amenities while keeping the historic charm intact.
Croswell Opera House
Although it’s the oldest continuously running theater in Michigan (and the third oldest in all of the United States), Croswell Opera House has more vibrancy than most venues half its age. Renovated over the last two decades with a new stage floor, an enlarged orchestra pit, and burgundy and gold medallions atop a fresh coat of paint, the historic venue has lost none of its old-fashioned charm as it continues through its second century.
Originally constructed in 1866, the downtown epicenter of Lenawee County arts and culture has played host to a rich timeline of American entertainment. The 1800s featured vaudeville acts, musicians, and orators such as Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, and the early 1900s saw silent movies swallowed by the next wave of cinema: loudies. Although it was nearly demolished in 1967, the opera house persevered with the loving care of its staff and patrons, and today continues to host a wealth of musical acts, Broadway shows, and children’s theater.
