(10/24/2014) - Park Square opens its brand new Andy Boss Thrust Stage next month with Sandra Cisneros' THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET. In a new adaptation by Amy Ludwig, THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET paints a moving portrait of Esperanza Cordero, a 'yellow weed among the city cracks,' who dreams of a better, safer life far from her Chicago barrio. The Chicago Tribune called Cisneros' work '...a cascade of memory...one of the finest books penned about finding, understanding, keeping, leaving and (eventually) returning to your place.'

Two years ago, he challenged then Mayor of Minneapolis, RT Rybak to cancel Christmas; however he only succeeded in getting fruitcake banned. This year, he is taking the issue to the people!

BWW Reviews: Bloomington Civic Theatre's Brilliant Musical NEXT TO NORMAL is Beautiful and Heartbreaking Photos BWW Reviews: Bloomington Civic Theatre's Brilliant Musical NEXT TO NORMAL is Beautiful and Heartbreaking
(10/21/2014) - Diverging from the usual feel-good classic musicals, Bloomington Civic Theatre is currently presenting NEXT TO NORMAL, one of the few musicals to win a Pulitzer Prize for drama and perhaps the most brilliantly written musical of this century. Unlike shows like Guys and Dolls or Singin' in the Rain, you won't leave the theater feeling happy and carefree. You'll leave feeling emotionally exhausted and perhaps continuing to think heavy thoughts for several days. NEXT TO NORMAL is not an easy show to watch, but it's such a rich and rewarding experience. I couldn't be happier that there are not one but two local productions if it this season, at BCT now through November 15, and at Yellow Tree Theatre next spring. This was my fifth time seeing NEXT TO NORMAL, and BCT's production is as beautiful and heartbreaking as ever.

Gadfly Theatre Productions Present GIRL GUMSHOE AND DETECTIVE DAD, Now thru 10/26 Photos Gadfly Theatre Productions Present GIRL GUMSHOE AND DETECTIVE DAD, Now thru 10/26
(10/17/2014) - 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 today, October 17th-26th.

BWW Reviews: In Theater Latte Da's Magnificent Production of MASTER CLASS, Sally Wingert Embodies the Legendary Maria Callas Photos BWW Reviews: In Theater Latte Da's Magnificent Production of MASTER CLASS, Sally Wingert Embodies the Legendary Maria Callas
(10/14/2014) - I don't know opera, and I don't believe I had ever heard the name Maria Callas before seeing Theater Latte Da's MASTER CLASS. But I have been educated. I now know that Maria Callas was one of the most talented, dedicated, and fascinating artists of the 20th century. Her paintbrush was her voice, her canvas was the stage, her creation was opera. She sacrificed everything for her art, and had very strong opinions about what art is and what it isn't. She shared those opinions in a series of master classes at Julliard in the early '70s. Playwright Terrence McNally used those classes as the backdrop against which to tell the story of who this woman was in his 1996 Tony-winning play. Her attitude towards art may not lead to the healthiest and happiest of lifestyles, but it does in some cases lead to some exquisite art, both in her singing, and in this magnificent production by Theater Latte Da.
