|Once a garage, the remodeled Purple Rose Theater, opened in 1991, sports a simple marque.|
What do you do while agitating your badly clogged rapidograph nibs for hours so you can make decent presentation drawings? This Ms. Gibbs went to the theater.
|While Ms. Gibbs' nibs agitated for hours,|

But I have to apologize for my blurry photographs. I really do need a new battery for my very old, but favorite Konica Minolta. While no photographs were allowed while the play was on, I did manage to sneak one of the stage set with my pocket sized honey before the action began. And do watch the talent of Jeff Daniels. His monologue on The New Room is so apropos as our elections approach next month. It really is time, we got off our obese butts and put a guy in charge that has run a large corporation. Do we want a sweet talker, or the silent type who knows more about moving mountains than giving folksy speeches?
