Original play chronicles life of musician Frankie Cox
The Douglas County Historical Society brings audiences back to Tony's Cabaret on Third Street with "The Frankie Cox Story."
Cox performed at Tony's for 44 years. The society's History Theatre takes a look at Cox's life — from his youth, through his teen years, to his becoming a husband and father, his years blowing his trumpet at Tony's Cabaret.
This original play written and produced by Wes Kruse, with music by Randy Lee and his Hot Five will take you back in time to the raucous days of Superior's north end waterfront. Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Performances will take place at 7 p.m. Feb. 1, 2, 8, 9 and 2 p.m. Feb. 3 and 10. Visit douglashistory.org for more information.
