(10/19/2014) - Actor Sal Viscuso never turns down a challenge, which may explain his long career on stage, film and television, where many audience members will recall him from diverse roles. Most recently, he's seen on 'SCANDAL' with director of A STEADY RAIN, Jeff Perry. BWW Minneapolis learned a bit more about him in this interview.


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.

BWW Reviews: Children's Theatre Company Brings the Novel SEEDFOLKS to Life in a Mesmerizing One-Woman Show Photos BWW Reviews: Children's Theatre Company Brings the Novel SEEDFOLKS to Life in a Mesmerizing One-Woman Show
(10/9/2014) - 'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.' This Margaret Mead quote greeted me upon exiting the theater after seeing Children's Theatre Company's SEEDFOLKS. I don't know if this quote is always in their lobby, or if it's specific to this show, but it is the perfect summation of this beautiful play. Paul Fleischman's 1997 novel tells the story of a vacant lot in Cleveland being transformed into a community garden from the perspective of multiple different characters. In CTC's adaptation, all of these characters and more are portrayed by one woman - Sonja Parks. She brilliantly transforms from a young Vietnamese girl, to an elderly Romanian woman, to a Guatemalan boy, and everything in between in the course of just over an hour. It's an epic journey of a neighborhood that transforms from one of fear and distrust to one that, while it might still have those things, is more deeply connected and supportive, all due to the growing of plants. A small group of thoughtful, committed citizens change the world, or at least their small corner of it.

(10/8/2014) - Children's Theatre Company (CTC) is proud to present Seedfolks, a world premiere developed by CTC through the new play development lab. Based on the Newbery Medal-winning book by Paul Fleischman, Seedfolks is about an immigrant neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio that is transformed by a community garden. Actor Sonja Parks embodies the eleven distinct voices of Gibb Street in this enthralling, one-woman production, directed by Peter C. Brosius. Seedfolks runs now through November 16, 2014 on the Cargill Stage. Below, BroadwayWorld has a first look at Parks onstage!


BWW Reviews: Walking Shadow's GABRIEL is a Chilling and Captivating Look at a Little Known Facet of WWII History Photos BWW Reviews: Walking Shadow's GABRIEL is a Chilling and Captivating Look at a Little Known Facet of WWII History
(10/7/2014) - As I left the theater yesterday afternoon, I clutched my sweater close around me to ward off the chill. Not the chill in the crisp fall air, but the chill from the play I had just seen - Walking Shadow's GABRIEL. This story about a little known facet of WWII history is so captivating, horrifying, chilling, and completely engaging that it hangs with you well after you leave the theater. The excellent cast and realistic set make you feel like you're right there, as this family fights for survival on a Nazi-occupied British island. It's only playing for one more weekend, but it's well worth it if you can make it. You won't soon forget this beautifully done, powerful play.
