We at GEM Theatrics celebrate these journeys with a crossing, of sorts, of our own. In less than a week, we will open our production of "My Dearest Friend" by Mary G. Kron across the state of Michigan from our home base in the cozy Snug Theatre in Marine City. Performances are June 12 - 22 and tickets can be obtained on the theatre's website or by calling 810-278-1749.
Adams was sent three times across the Atlantic Ocean
In 1778, en route to Holland to negotiate a loan to sustain the American states, John's ship sprang a leak which required all hands -- including John and John Quincy -- to man the pumps around the clock.
By 1785, when John next went to England as the first United States ambassador, the seas had calmed a bit.
With luck, GEM Theatrics' crossing of the State of Michigan by car will also be uneventful. We hope wherever you come from on your way to Marine City to see our show, that the path will be clear and smooth and dry. Come out and see our show!
