Shall we dance? 'The King and I' is still selling out shows: this week on the Green Room

May 15, 2015

Traverse City's Joshua Davis has advanced to the final round of NBC's singing contest 'The Voice.' Now it's up to his supporters to get out the vote to try to bring him a victory.

Plus, 'The King and I' is once again selling out on Broadway, nearly 65 years after its debut. But you don't have to go all the way to New York City to see the musical – it's on stage in northern Michigan at Interlochen Center for the Arts.

And can you imagine journeying around the entire Leelanau Peninsula? That's what two artists are doing, and they've got the photographs and paintings to prove it.

Wait, why is it called the Green Room again?

A green room is a space where performers hang out between the dressing room and the stage. It's a place to relax, that usually has a couch and some snacks. So think of the Green Room on Interlochen Public Radio as your backstage pass into the world of the arts each week.

There is some irony with the name. Though IPR constantly hosts artists as they perform live from our very own Studio A, we don't actually have a green room in the building. We don't even have a couch!
