Here’s how bad Brexit could get for the car industry, dealers are pissed at Volvo, Detroit had some fun cars and much more for The Morning Shift of Monday, Jan. 21 2019. We’re on limited duty today as Martin Luther King Jr. Day is both a federal holiday and a company one, but we have plenty of good stuff for you anyway. We’ll be back to full speed tomorrow. 1st Gear: Uhhh... Many politicians in Great Britain promised that an exit from the European Union would be easy peasy lemon squeezy, but as we are learning now, it is likely going to be difficult difficult lemon difficult, to borrow a common phrase from across the pond. As an American I’m near-clueless on the fine print details of Brexit, but what matters most at present is that a no-deal British exit from the European Union now seems increasingly likely. That means that when the departure takes effect on March 29, the country would have no customs, trade, citizenship or travel deals with the EU.

What broadway shows are playing in new york city
John Gallagher Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EST Jan 21, 2019 As we say goodbye to the last wintertime auto show, it’s time to reflect how Detroit — so lively in summer months — really needs to figure out how to encourage urban street life in winter months. The annual North American International Auto Show at Cobo Center always draws thousands of journalists during preview days and hundreds of thousands of visitors during the public show, which this year concludes Sunday. But with future shows being held in June starting in 2020, all those visitors will show up downtown during one of our busiest outdoor seasons — and leave a big gap in the schedule during the winter. Anyone who lives here knows that Detroiters use their city very differently in nice weather than in winter. Spring, summer and fall are our outdoors seasons, a time for golf and boating and picnics, for shorts and shirt-sleeves. Belle Isle is packed with people on summer weekends. The … [Read more...] about Detroit needs a plan to plug next winter’s auto show gap

Julie Hinds Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EST Dec 9, 2018 For as long as she can remember, "To Kill a Mockingbird" has loomed large for Celia Keenan-Bolger. "I remember my mother reading it to me before I could read, and we watched the movie. It was just very much in line with the principles of our household," says the 40-year-old actress and three-time Tony Award nominee, who grew up in Detroit in a family that prioritized working for social justice. In her family, the classic 1960 novel by Harper Lee wasn't only a great piece of literature. It was a tool for building a caring, empathetic approach to life. On Thursday, when the Aaron Sorkin adaptation of "To Kill A Mockingbird" officially opens on Broadway, she will be playing the role of young Scout Finch. Another Michigander, film and TV star Jeff Daniels, has the lead role of her father, Atticus Finch, the white lawyer in the racist Jim Crow South who … [Read more...] about Celia Keenan-Bolger brings Detroit lessons to Broadway
Michael James Scott as Genie in the North American tour of “Aladdin,” one of the shows coming to the Kennedy Center next season. (Deen van Meer) No “Hamilton” hyperventilating next season: The Kennedy Center’s big theater attractions for 2018-19 will be “Aladdin,” “Miss Saigon” and “Hello, Dolly!,” starring Betty Buckley, in the Opera House, with last year’s Tony-winning “Dear Evan Hansen” returning to town after debuting in 2015 at Arena Stage. Under the guidance of Jeffrey Finn, hired in late 2016 to head theatrical producing and programming, the Kennedy Center continues to gradually expand what it makes in house. This season’s popular Broadway Center Stage series of musicals in concert — which included Lin-Manuel Miranda taking a bow with the concert cast of his “In the Heights” last month — will be back, with a twist. The three concert musicals will be “Little … [Read more...] about ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ and ‘The Band’s Visit’ are coming to the Kennedy Center
