Gadfly Theatre Productions to Present GIRL GUMSHOE AND DETECTIVE DAD, 10/17-26Gadfly Theatre Productions to Present GIRL GUMSHOE AND DETECTIVE DAD, 10/17-26
by BWW News Desk - Sep 29, 2014

A noir parody about growing up and moving forward by local playwright Eli Effinger-Weintraub. Gina views moving day as a flag on the shores of maturity and independence. Too bad her father, Troy, makes immaturity and dependence so exciting. While Gina's mother Irene and girlfriend Sarita do the bulk of the work, Troy and Gina indulge in one last round of Girl Gumshoe and Detective Dad, a game from Gina's childhood. But when Detective Dad thinks he's uncovered a murder, the game takes a turn that threatens relationships, living arrangements, and sanity and forces Gina to choose between security and adventure, past and future. Girl Gumshoe and Detective Dad is a comedy that proves it's never too late to grow up--or to avoid growing up at all costs. Girl Gumshoe will be produced at the People's Center Theatre on the West Bank of Minneapolis, and runs October 17th-26th. (more...)

Photo Flash: The Big Apple Circus Comes to Town - at a Lincoln Center Near You!Photo Flash: The Big Apple Circus Comes to Town - at a Lincoln Center Near You!
by BWW News Desk - Oct 22, 2014

The Big Apple Circus is a gentle and innocent circus, not aimed at those addicted to keypads or raised on 'Grand Theft Auto', but mostly for those too young to know they might want to shoot and kill virtual villains for their entertainment, or those old enough to recall when they could be entertained by being given a gift of a smile. Notwithstanding that, as circus artists go, these are as good as one sees anywhere. The contortionists will astonish; the quick change artists delight and amaze. The trapeze act will have your heart in your mouth. Still this is unpretentious, one-ring circus presented with modest fuss and bother, and no smoke or mirrors. It will not deafen you with its volume or blind you with its lights - although there are both light and live music - but it will entertain you, as will the animated children around you. (more...)
