Ernie's playing at City Theatre in Detroit

A young girl told us they had attended the play Ernie at City Theatre in Detroit and absolutely loved it.  Ernie Harwell, broadcaster for the Detroit Tigers for decades, is one of the most admired and cherished Detroiters of all time, but he was 92 when he passed away last year. It surprised us that a teenager would know of him or even be interested.  Mitch Albom, journalist, musician and radio broadcaster himself and a resident of Detroit for 26 years, created this play around our beloved announcer which appeals to all ages. What a way to preserve his memory and to teach our youth about character and integrity. All the tickets for tonight and this weekend are sold out.  Better get your tickets while you can! City Theatre opened in 2004.  It's a small intimate auditorium of 500 seats tucked inside Hockeytown --a stone's throw from Comerica Park where this fine statue of Ernie greets fans as they enter the ballpark.
