Susan Bloch and the Supremes

Join Professor Susan Low Bloch in an evening of fun, facts and fancy about the U.S. Supreme Court’s past, present, and future. Experience the terror of the woman who told Justice Thurgood Marshall his draft opinion was wrong! Hear the Justice’s unpublished – and unexpurgated – response! Bloch, a professor of law at Georgetown Law Center, is the co-author of Inside the Supreme Court: The Institution and Its Procedures and served as law clerk for Thurgood Marshall on the United States Supreme Court. Joining Professor Bloch is her husband Richard Bloch. A graduate of the University of Michigan Law School (J.D.), Mr. Bloch has served on the faculties of the University of Michigan and the University of Detroit. In this fun event, you’ll have the chance to ask any questions you might have like: “Will the Court be changing? (Do liberals live forever?)” and “Why is the Supreme Court NOT the highest court in the land?” Learn Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about The Supreme Court: A Conversation with Susan Low Bloch at The Lyric Theatre on March 21 at 7:00pm. Tickets are available online at LyricTheatre.com or through The Lyric Box Office at (772) 286-7827.

Dixieland Jazz band returns to The Lyric

Beloved Doc Grober and his famous Dixieland Jazz band the Mudcats return to explore The Jazz Age. Bringing the sounds of the 1920s and 1930s, in the time of F. Scott Fitzgerald and flapper girls, The Jazz Age will highlight the formative years after World War I. Always a favorite, Doc Grober keeps his fans coming back for more with his high-energy jazz renditions, and witty comments. Before Doc Grober became a surgeon, he was a pianist in a Pennsylvania band called Ron Grober’s Quaker City Rhythm Kings. The Kings toured across the northeast, but eventually, Grober had to put his musical career on hold as he became the Florida team physician for the New York and St. Lucie Mets. When the Pelican Yacht Club of Ft. Pierce asked Grober to perform at an upcoming jazz event, he organized a group of local musicians to perform, and The Doc and his Mudcats have been together ever since. Doc Grober and the Mudcats return with their high-energy jazz renditions for another Lyric performance in The Jazz Age on March 23 at 7:00pm. Tickets are available online at LyricTheatre.com or through The Lyric Box Office at (772) 286-7827.
