Easy Space Theatre, another loosely knit group
who put on political satires in a Southwest Detroit storefront. Judy Coletti, Richard Ades and Gordon Barry were
instrumental in that group.
Again, a lot of talented people involved but the only names I can
remember are Angela DiSante and a man named Hughthir White.
A lot of good theatre was also happening at the HoHo Inn, the old
Chinese restaurant that became the Grinning Duck Club - a
performance space for music and political theatre. The Club put on a
great show when the Republican convention was held in Detroit. The
club eventually moved to the old Willis Show Bar. I think Alan and
Ralph Franklin were instrumental in organizing the Grinning Duck
Club. Working with theatre groups in the Corridor was great.
It was political, creative and fun - what more
could a gal ask for?
