Huge talking-head reminiscences on Tiger baseball by governor Jennifer Granholm and actor Dann Florek of Law & Order; he's an EMU theater alum periodically project from on high. Their reminiscences are perhaps no more poignant than those of any Joe Sixpack off the street (though if you've ever watched Law and Order, you won't be surprised to see Florek wringing every last drop of bathos out of his). At any rate, you can't help being impressed that they wanted to be a part of this production.
Diamonds in the D returns for three nights, Thursday through Saturday, September 6-8, at EMU's Sponberg Theatre. Bone up on your Tiger history, because if you're brave enough to sign up as an audience volunteer, you can win some great prizes.
