With the exception of disputed foul calls and extreme debate clubs, the stage remains the only venue where arguments are regularly settled with a sword fight. Behold a dramatic settling of differences with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two tickets to see Coach by Mike Enberg at Meyer Theatre on Saturday, March 31, at 8 p.m. (a $50 value).
Coach directs the spotlight toward the rich life of legendary Marquette basketball coach and CBS broadcaster Al McGuire in a one-man show starring Broadway vet Cotter Smith. Dressed in a green sweater and khakis, Smith submerses himself in the role of Emmy winner Dick Enberg, who was McGuire's broadcasting partner for more than a decade and penned Coach to honor his eccentric friend. McGuire's gravelly, streetwise personality weaves the captivating and amusing story of his life—from his NCAA championship win to a successful career as a sports commentator—which he lived to the fullest before his death from leukemia in 2001.
Home to the Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ, Meyer Theatre evokes early 20th-century entertainment venues by complementing its red stage curtain with majestic statues and decorative columns laced with gold leaf. Patrons sink into the venue’s plush red seats, where they can admire the ceiling’s midnight-blue hue, glittering fiber-optic stars, and rotating galaxy of whoopee cushions.
