From heading to Severance Hall to hear the Cleveland Orchestra to a one-day event filled with local artists, Clevelanders give us their picks on what you can’t miss this fall.
Kathleen Corlett
"In my neighborhood, the nonprofit gallery Arts Collinwood is doing a big show with Gary and Laura Dumm in October. Gary is a really old friend and one of the main illustrators for Harvey Pekar’s American Splendor book series. He’s an amazing cartoonist. He used to draw a strip for an underground newspaper that we had back in the late ’70s called the Cleveland Express.”

“I’m really looking forward to the Sparx City Hop. It’s always interesting to see what your peers are up to. The Wooltex Gallery always has something going on. It’s cool to walk through these buildings — they really are hubs of creativity. You see a building with 20 different artists in it and everybody is a working, professional artist. You have no idea they’re in these warehouse buildings. It’s a whole subculture going on that a lot of people don’t know about just driving through downtown Cleveland.”
— Michael Greenwald, artist

“Actors’ Summit Theater in Hudson is doing a musical called Are We There Yet? What struck me about that is we have a really close extended family. Most people in our family never left Cleveland, so we’re always here, running into each other and having parties. Sometimes it’s really good, and other times ... . The play’s a look at the roller coaster that is family life, and I think that I’ve experienced that, and most of us have at one point or another.”
— Andrea Anelli, founder of Opera Per Tutti

“The Cleveland Orchestra has a piano soloist, Mitsuko Uchida, who is really dynamic. My wife and I saw her last year, and she’s amazing. This year she’s performing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4. We’re definitely going to see that.”

—  Ed Michaels, director of Lakeland Community College’s Jazz Impact » Oct. 8,
“Dobama Theatre opens this fall in a new location with a revised Ten Minutes From Cleveland sequel, Ten More Minutes From Cleveland, both written by a Clevelander [Eric Coble]. Dobama closed with one and opened with the other. Since they first announced the renovation on Lee Road, I’ve been keeping my fingers crossed.”
