Cleveland Heights City Administrator-select Danny Williams Makes His Case for Confirmation


City Council appeared to find itself in agreement on the nomination of Danny Williams as the next city administrator during a public hearing Monday (Aug. 14) that clocked in at under 30 minutes.

Some of the brevity resulted from the seasoned, knowledgeable, and diplomatic Williams already doing some legwork after Mayor Kahlil Seren announced his selection for the post Aug. 4. Williams conferred individually with council members to answer any preliminary questions they had...

Barenaked Ladies Singer Steven Page

At Cain Park TONIGHT, 8:00 pm

When asked which bands he listened to, Paul McCartney reportedly said Canadian alt-rockers Barenaked Ladies--because their harmonies were better than those of the Beatles. That's high praise!

By the time lead vocalist Steven Page left the band in 2009 to pursue a solo career:

  • BNL’s single, One Week, spent exactly one week at Number 1 on the Billboard chart.
  • The group appeared as the guest band on an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210.
  • Their first album, Gordon, went platinum on the popularity of hit singles Be My Yoko Ono and If I Had $1,000,000
  • Audience members had taken to throwing Kraft Macaroni and Cheese at the band when they sang a particular lyric.

BNL built a reputation for improvisation and humor during live shows that fueled a loyal following.

Page brings his solo act to the Cain Park stage TONIGHT (Friday, August 18) in a performance that will serve up a dose of 90s' sardonic wit along with an infectious, toe-tapping beat.

Tickets for Steven Page can be purchased by calling 216-371-3000 or visiting the box office in person.

'Fun Home' at Cain Park is a Complex and Funny Exploration of Family Secrets

The production asks a lot, and delivers as much

From Scene Magazine

Fun Home, now at Cain Park's Alma Theatre, is a glorious puzzle—a contradictory and searching mess that requires the audience to sometimes work as hard as the actors to fully experience the way this show illuminates the tragedy of family secrets and haunting memories. And on top of all that, it's wickedly funny.

Based on the prize-winning graphic memoir by Alison Bechdel, this musical (book and lyrics by Lisa Kron, music by Jeanine Tesori) explores how a "typical" family with three kids in a small Pennsylvania town faces their demons. And not always successfully...

Fun Home is a play dealing with heavy topics, but Kron's sharp wit and Tesori's evocative music save the day. And under the wise and thoughtful direction of Joanna May Cullinan, it becomes one of those musicals that, if you put in the effort, will reside within you long after the curtain falls.

Cleveland Heights Plans Timed Re-route of Traffic at Noble Elementary


City officials have come up with a potential solution to traffic snarls -- and dangers -- around Noble Elementary School during student drop-off and pickup times.

Mayor Kahlil Seren said the city received a $39,000 quote on new lighting and signals for a new “time-based, one-way, circular pattern” on school day mornings and afternoons. The cost does not include installation, he told council at its Aug. 7 meeting.

“In order to create the least amount of confusion, we have to make sure we are signaling the one-way time period as quickly as we can,” Seren added after the issue was discussed at public meetings.
