Everybody, meet Noah: Roberta King’s new memoir, “He Plays a Harp,” is a family love story

BY TERRI FINCH HAMILTON PHOTOS BY T.J. HAMILTON Beans for tacos are simmering in a crock pot on the counter as Roberta King and her husband Mike Miesch sit at the kitchen table talking about Noah. They do this a lot. Their son Noah died eight years ago at the age of 17 from pneumonia, a complication of a life with cerebral palsy. But the essence of Noah is all over the place in their pink and white beach house in Muskegon. His photo is on the refrigerator. His shoes are lined up in his…

Clybourne Park: Let’s make fun of the way we talk about race

BY: LAURA BERGELLS PHOTOS: IAN ANDERSON Talking frankly and publicly about race in a public forum will probably get you in trouble. No matter what you say, someone is going to take offense -- even when none is intended. And what about listening to someone else? Can you really do it without judging? Or will you be just as quick to take offense, too? The provocative comedy Clybourne Park doesn't try to solve tough issues like racism and gentrification. It will, however, aim to make you laugh…

The “Inside Dish” on Grand Rapids Civic Theatre’s season kick off — The Great Gatsby.

Jessica Schilling Director Bruce Tinker said it best when he remarked that “’Civic’ is our middle name so being part of the community is very important to the Grand Rapids Civic Theater (“#GRCT”)”. While the #GRCT is kicking off its 90th season, there is nothing antiquated about how they seek to synergize with other downtown Grand Rapids businesses. The #GRCT is finding new ways to deepen community partnership and uses art as a reflection of life to address issues that are relevant to us…

Redefining ‘different’ through art and disability

BY CHELSIE WYSE PHOTOS BY BRYAN ESLER From the moment he was born, Dr. Christopher Smit and his parents knew he was different, but not just because he was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy. Smit is a go-getter, a conversation starter; the person to always ask why. Growing up, Smit’s parents didn’t let having a disability label his gifts and abilities as ‘special’ or ‘extraordinary’ given his condition. “I was encouraged to do whatever I wanted to do,” says Smit, who serves as the Director of…
