Now Playing Onstage in St. Paul - Week of 2/16/2014 MARIA DE BARROS
Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, Music Theater
2/19-2/19/2014
Cape Verdean chanteuse Maria de Barros invites us into her culture's joyful musical tradition. She sings about the beauty of Cabo Verde and a longing for the island, and her songs are filled with stories of love and romance. "The stories told in the songs are poetic descriptions of real and profound human emotions that are not just felt by Cabo Verdeans, but by the rest of the world," she says. Five-time Grammy® nominee Cesaria Evora, the "barefoot diva", helped to place the music of Cabo Verde on U.S. audiences' musical map. Evora's ongoing encouragement led to her god-daughter fashioning her own lively and vivacious interpretation of Cabo Verdean music. Together, Evora, the Queen of the Mornas, and Maria de Barros, the Queen of the Coladeiras, paint a complete musical picture of this tradition-rich land.

Now Playing Onstage in St. Paul - Week of 2/16/2014 THE INCREDIBLE SEASON OF RONNIE RABINOVITZ
History Theatre
2/1-2/23/2014
Meet the Rabinovitz family: David, Charlotte and their son Ronnie. David was an attorney working hard on the campaign to nominate John F. Kennedy as the Democratic candidate for President. Ronnie was an average 15-year-old who also happened to have a close pen-pal friendship with baseball legend Jackie Robinson. In 1960, the Rabinovitz home in Sheboygan, Wisconsin became an unlikely intersection of baseball, civil rights, and politics as the family hosted two the American icons. Sharp wit, humor, politics, and baseball light up the stage in this new play by Eric Simonson, writer of the Broadway hit Lombardi.
