WEST BLOOMFIELD - The Berman Center for the Performing Arts is pleased to announce its upcoming 2012–13 season. Inspired by an extraordinary gift from Madeleine and Mandell Berman, The Berman Center for the Performing Arts is a beautiful, world-class, 600-seat theater that opened in the spring of 2011. More than 20,000 guests already have attended events at The Berman.
This season's schedule offers a diverse collection of classical music, drama and comedy, outstanding children's programming and Broadway. The new Signature Series will feature the biggest names in performing arts today and talent that has not appeared in Michigan for a very long time.
The season's opening performance in October features legendary Broadway star Barbara Cook live in concert. Later in the season, Midori, the incomparable violinist who made her first recording when she was only 14, will grace the stage. One of the greatest novels of all time, "Of Mice & Men," will be performed by the renowned Acting Company. Plus, family friendly programming highlighting everyone's favorite Angelina Ballerina and the Russian National Ballet performance of the classic "Swan Lake" will all be a part of this extraordinary season.
In conjunction with the JCC's Annual Jewish Book Fair in November, The Berman will host author and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and legendary folk singer, author and artist Judy Collins.
The Berman Center for the Performing Arts is located in the campus of the Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit, 6600 West Maple Road, in West Bloomfield.
