Quirk Theater
Eastern Michigan University Theatre is pleased to present the Kander and Ebb classic Cabaret, with performances on October 18-20 and 24-27, 2019. All performances will take place in the Quirk Theatre, located in the Quirk Dramatic Arts Building at the intersection of East Circle Drive and Best Hall/Ann Street on EMU’s Ypsilanti Campus. This production is recommended for audiences ages 16+. The year is 1929. The place, Berlin’s bawdy nightspot the Kit Kat Klub. Outside the club, Germany succumbs to the power of the emerging Third Reich; inside, the Emcee intoxicates audiences with promises that troubles will be forgotten at the Cabaret. Caught up in this world-at-odds is a host of memorable characters: the naïve writer, Cliff; the seductive singer, Sally Bowles; the boarding house head mistress, Fraulein Schneider; and the Jewish fruit seller, Herr Schultz. With a score by John Kander and Fred Ebb and a book by Joe Masteroff, this 1998 Revival version of the Tony Award- winning musical provides a scorching satiric indictment of frivolous complacency in the face of impending doom. Ticket prices for Cabaret are $18 regular admission, $14 for Seniors (60+), and $12 for students & MAINSTAGE patrons. Tickets are available in person at the Convocation Center, Student Center ticket office or the Quirk Box Office, by phone at 734.487.2282, and online at www.emutix.com. Quirk Box Office hours are Monday-Friday from 1-5:30pm and 90 minutes before showtime. Please note that there is an additional surcharge for tickets purchased by mail, phone or online.

**U.S. capitalism developed in a territory blessed with productive land and a vast amount of raw materials. What it did not have was labor power--people to do the work. **For most of its history, American capital filled that hole with slaves, tens of millions of people robbed from Africa. **When it could no longer get enough slaves, capital turned to immigrants to fill its workplaces. Tens of millions more people, billions in profit. **Dumped into a strange land, they had no choice but to work for low pay, under terrible conditions. And capital used them as a battering ram to keep down the wages and conditions of other workers. **Generation after generation, the working class often found itself divided into hostile camps: native born versus recent immigrants -- with black workers usually kept on the lowest rungs of the ladder. **But there were times when workers fought their way out of these divisions, times we never hear about. These are the times we need to build on.

A workshop focusing on how the transition to digital has made rapid, data-driven decision making a critical component in marketing, business, and government will be held at Eastern Michigan University on Friday, Nov. 15. The Digital Marketing workshop, based on the theme, “The Speed of Change,” will feature Garlin Gilchrist, Lieutenant Governor of Michigan, as the opening keynote speaker. Lt. Gov. Gilchrist served as a social media manager for the Obama campaign and Director of National Campaigns for MoveOn.org before returning to Detroit as its first-ever Director of Innovation & Emerging Technology. He will share his vision for using public data and technology to address the pressing concerns of our state, in a talk entitled “The Best Digital Isn’t Digital.” Speakers from Google, LawnGuru, Hyperion Coffee, Dynamo Metrics, and many more will provide actionable insights for harnessing “The Speed of Change” in a business or organization. Jenn Hayman, Director of Marketing for Zingerman's, will close the day with a panel on "The Marriage of Data, Branding, and Marketing". You can sign up for the workshop at the registration web page. There is an early registration date of Oct 31. The early rate of $50 buys breakfast and lunch as well as all the day's content. Breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. and the program will begin promptly at 8 a.m. The workshop is hosted by the EMU Center for Digital Engagement and its director, professor Bud Gibson. Gibson led the establishment of the center at Eastern Michigan in 2015. With the generous support of Ann Arbor SPARK and the College of Business, the CDE currently sponsors the Digital Marketing Workshop and a monthly breakfast series.
