Evan Miller Bio
Evan Miller is the president of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission. He cames to the GCFC from Abrams Artists Agency, where he served as a feature film and television talent agent, representing a wide array of clients in film, television and theater. In his role, he worked collaboratively with clients, writers and producers to foster projects from script to screen, as well as established relationships with feature and television development executives – skillsets and connections that he leverages in his new position.

The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.

Hank says of the program:
“Our neighbors went to work, then came home to their families. Ballplayers went to work, were cheered or booed, then went home to their families, often in workingclass areas. In the off-season they had jobs as laborers , salesmen, clerks, and on and on. Players weren’t special other than getting to play games as adults . There are many stories of famous men that show that our parents and grandparents were all of one fabric”
