Ripcord is sold out for the whole run! Great reviews too!

John Monaghan's Detroit Free Press Review: https://www.freep.com/story/entertainment/arts/2018/04/05/ripcord-review-tipping-point-theatre-northville/483492002/  "I am now happy to report that “Ripcord,” which continues through April 22, exceeds all expectations. Director James R. Kuhl assembles some of the best elements of the metro Detroit theater community to bring to life a clever script by David Lindsay-Abaire that bristles with humor, energy and genuine human compassion. I haven’t  laughed and cried this much at the same play in years"

New York Times covers Public Enemy: Flint

"The actors came to Flint from theater companies around the country in collaboration with Flint community organizers. They rehearsed together in Flint for only the past two weeks. And when the showings began Thursday night, no one knew who would come — if anyone at all. There were no tickets. Admission was free. A mix of people wandered in over the three-night run: retired auto industry workers, former Flint schoolteachers, retired medical workers, college students."
