Premiere of: "Eric Gutman's From Broadway to Obscurity", which was recorded at Marygrove Theatre by Detroit Public TV, is a musical love letter to both Broadway and Michigan. At the peak of his career playing several roles in the Tony and Grammy award-winning smash hit Jersey Boys on Broadway, Eric Gutman made the decision to return to his hometown in Metro Detroit so he could raise his two young daughters close to family. Weaving together beloved songs from musical theatre and popular music, dead-on celebrity impressions, and sneak peeks at what goes on backstage at one of the biggest hits in Broadway history, Gutman, who made the transition from Broadway star to suburban Michigan Dad, will share his extraordinary gifts with audiences in this thrilling concert experience.

This presentation is part of a groundbreaking partnership between two Great Lakes regional theatres and two Great Lakes PBS stations. Detroit Public Theatre (DPT), Chautauqua Theater Company (CTC), Detroit Public TV (DPTV) and WNED PBS in Buffalo are bringing two acclaimed solo plays to the small screen. The other show, Nilaja Sun's, "No Child..." premiered on CHQ Assembly January 28 and remains available on-demand.
