One fact that surprises most people is this: There's a lot more live theater happening in Downtown and Midtown Detroit than most people realize. Sure, most are familiar with the Fisher, the Fox, the Michigan Opera Theatre and the Hilberry. But the city is also home to an ever-growing number of small companies that exist with little fanfare - and that offer patrons of all backgrounds and interests an evening of entertainment they may not find anywhere else. One such company is Magenta Giraffe Theatre Company, whose mission includes the reestablishment and expansion of Detroit's once bustling theater district. Host Donald V. Calamia talks with co-founder and artistic director Frannie Shepherd-Bates, one of the young movers and shakers of Detroit's artistic renaissance, who discusses a number of innovative projects in which she's involved - and what theatergoers can expect from Magenta Giraffe in its new home this season!
