Preview: Escanaba in da Moonlight at Main Street Theatre Works
Main Street Theatre Works, situated in the foothill town of Jackson, transports the audience to a backwoods hunting lodge in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in the Jeff Daniels comedy Escanaba in da Moonlight. The occasion is the opening day of deer season for the Soady clan—which for them means “Christmas with guns” plus foaming beer cans—and one unlucky member of the family is under pressure to “bag a buck” to establish his manhood. Fri 8pm, Sat 8pm. Through 9/8; $12-$20; Kennedy Mine Amphitheatre, 1127 N Main Street in Jackson; mstw.org.
