Migguel Anggelo Presents: So Close: Love & Hate

Fri., Oct. 19, 7:30-9:30 p.m.
phone 313.833.7900
vera@twoshepsthatpass.com

It’s nearly impossible to try and put Migguel Anggelo into a box or peg him as any one thing. The Venezuelan-born artist is best known for his barrier-breaking multicultural and multilingual theatrical music performances, which Aggelo started as early as age 13 when he scored the role of Pinocchio in a South American tour of the Broadway musical. Classically trained in schools throughout the world in music, dance, and theatre, Anggelo is a whirling dervish of disciplines and worldly narratives. His latest program, So Close: Love & Hate, is a song cycle that features everything from Latin classics to Broadway, and even Bjork. free

Chicago

Fri., Oct. 19, 8 p.m., Sat., Oct. 20, 2 & 8 p.m. and Sun., Oct. 21, 2 & 7:30 p.m.

When being convicted of murder, just give ‘em the old razzle-dazzle. Based on a play written about real-life homicide cases in the early 1920s, Chicago wasn’t adapted into musical form until 1975, and was later famously adapted to screen for the Oscar-winning film of the same name with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renee Zellweger, and Richard Gere in 2002. Chicago follows the satirical journey of vaudevillian stage sirens Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart as they plan their glamorous escape from the gallows. As the drama unfolds, the women high-kick their way to freedom amid corruption and a whole lotta jazz. $39+

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Sat., Oct. 20, 10 p.m.

Halloween calls to mind haunted houses, tricks and treats, and pumpkin spice everything. But for those sweet transvestites from Transexual, Transylvania, it means a month of The Rocky Horror Picture Show screenings. Well, folks, the antici...pation is over. The campy cultural 1975 phenomenon starring Tim Curry as Dr. Frank N. Furter, Susan Sarandon as Janet (dammit!) Weiss, and boyfriend Brad Majors played by Barry Bostwick broke the mold as a hypersexual sci-fi musical that has gone on to touch (oh, has it touched) the beautiful pervs and prudes of the world. Fan rituals will be in full effect, as will the resident Michigan Theater RHPS shadowcast team the Leather Medusas. $8-$10

Kate Silvio: 'You can never go home again'

Oct. 20-Nov. 24, 6 p.m.

In a new solo show, artist Kate Silvio — a woman “on the cusp of what society defines as ‘middle age,’” according to a press release — offers new works that reflect upon aging, self-acceptance, and motherhood. “How did I get here?” Silvio writes in an artist statement. “Was it an action or a reaction? The realization is that you may not be able to recall the exact moment when you made these decisions, but it must be you who made them.” The sculptor, a College for Creative Studies alum who now lives in Grand Rapids, creates multimedia works made from metals, rubber, felt, and wood, among other materials.

Kali Uchis

Mon., Oct. 22, 7 p.m.

At just 24 years old, Colombian-American neo-soul songstress Kali Uchis is on to something. Isolation, her gliding 15-track debut released earlier this year, is a stark and original blend of coming-of-age and fully embraced womanhood. “Today is the day I’ll learn that I believe in miracles/ I can feel the world opening up, I think I broke the curse,” Uchis sings on “Tomorrow,” before launching into a song where she labels a former toxic lover “a killer.” With just a mixtape and an LP, Uchis has already aligned herself with solid collaborators by the likes of Daniel Caesar, Doja Smith, and Tyler, The Creator, and has toured in support of both Leon Bridges and Lana Del Rey. $30

Nine Inch Nails

Mon., Oct. 22, 7 p.m. and Tue., Oct. 23, 7 p.m.

Be still our cold, black, and infinite hearts — Nine Inch Nails is touring and it might just be “The Perfect Drug” for times like these. For 30 years, NIN has been the voice of the anti-band, with a seething industrial sound and contentious worldview. Thankfully, frontguy and composer Trent Reznor has decided to get the gang back together and will perform, arguably, the most intimate Detroit show since peddling The Downward Spiral at the State Theatre in 1994. In pre-dotcom fashion, NIN gave fans the rare opportunity to wait in a physical line for tickets before making them available online, to stick it to the ticketing man. $38+

Ann Arbor joins Toronto, New York, and Melbourne, as we feature--for one night only--the brilliance of 10,000 books and thousands of LED lights. What was just a street will become a beautiful installation to bring the power of art, education, the written word, and free thought to the entire Ann Arbor community by essentially “paving” Liberty St. with thousands of glowing books. Event begins at 5 p.m.-11 p.m.; 530 South State Street, Ann Arbor; Free. free
