and the Ben Daniels Band

WeDnesDay, noVember 1, 2017 – 7:30 P.m. In 1976, Jeff Daniels bought a Guild D-40 from Herb David’s Guitar Studio in Ann Arbor, Michigan, threw it in the back of his old Buick, and moved to New York City. That guitar led to a creative outlet, became a solace, and was a road into the artist that he didn’t know existed. Now, over 40 years later, Jeff Daniels released his eighth record, Simple Truths. In his own words, the Emmy-award winning actor shares…“Well, mostly I act, write, play guitar, have authored about 400 songs, played over 300 gigs the past 12 years from Maine to Alaska to Californ-i-a, drank from the fountain of youth by touring with my son’s band, founded The Purple Rose Theatre Company in Chelsea, Michigan, for which I’ve written 15 plays (working on number 16), and, with great pride and a range that would drive a normal actor straight to Betty Ford, have been seen most recently as Will McAvoy on HBO’s The Newsroom, and after 20 long years, with the one and only Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber To.

cybercafé Just inside the Heritage Center South Tower entrance with seating for 124, the Cybercafé is a beautiful, light-filled space for audience-goers to enjoy a meal or snack before or after the show. The floor-to-ceiling glass curtain wall in the café creates an environment for diners simulating both an indoor and outdoor experience all at once. In spring, summer, and fall, patrons might also enjoy sitting on the outdoor patio adjacent to the Cybercafé. Ninety-nine percent of Cybercafé sauces are made from recipes created by our own cooks and include pizza sauce, marinara, alfredo, Asian BBq, sweet and sour, teriyaki, General Tsao, Kung Pao, and peanut. Unique sandwich spreads are also homemade – avocado, Cajun, Chipotle, ranch, and others are custom made for special occasions. Soups and salads are all made from scratch – the lettuce/spinach salads, egg, tuna, chicken, and crab. We hand cut our own pork, chicken, salami, broccoli, peppers, onions, and more! We build our pizzas right before your eyes, as well as all sandwiches and your Asian grill favorites.
