This past Friday night, we went to see the NEOS Dance Theater perform "Count...The Legend of Dracula," at the Midland Theater. The classic horror story was re-envisioned as a multi-media event combining rock, pop & industrial music with video imaging & very few props. It was really unique & the ballet was beautiful. Note to self: if there is a possibility of the use of a smoke machine, DO NOT sit in the second row from the stage.
2 of the pictures above are from the inside of the Midland, which was restored in 1992, after having sat vacant for 14 years (first opened its doors on December 20th, 1928). The renovation was an $8.5 million investment & took over 8 years of meticulous restoration. We live about 10 minutes away from the theater & have seen several shows like Robert Cray & Second City.
This last picture was on my drive into work this morning. Thanks for stopping by & Happy Monday.
