BWW Review: 7th House Theater's New Original Musical THE PASSAGE, OR WHAT COMES OF SEARCHING IN THE DARK is Funny, Poignant, and Modern
by Jill Schafer - Nov 22, 2016

Musical theater is my favorite art form, and new original musicals are my favorite things in the world. I love seeing how music and theater can combine to tell a story in interesting forward-thinking ways. After re-imagining a couple of classic musicals (and one play), newish theater company 7th House Theater has turned to producing new original musicals. THE PASSAGE, OR WHAT COMES OF SEARCHING IN THE DARK, is the third such creation to be presented in the Guthrie Theater Studio. I've loved all of their work, but this one feels more personal and more modern and forward-thinking than what they've done before. THE PASSAGE feels like it's continuing along the trajectory of modern musicals like NEXT TO NORMAL and FUN HOME - an intimate family story told with a small cast and modern inventive staging. And the result is truly something special. (more...)

BWW Interviews: A Conversation with the Production Team of Flip Theatre's THE LAST FIVE YEARS
by Erin Nagel - Oct 4, 2013

There is a new theatre company in town and they hope to 'flip' musical theatre on its side one production at a time. Flip Theatre Company, founded by long time friends Ben Bakken and John Lynn, believes the crowded Twin Cities theatre scene has room for one more theatre company. The idea to form a theater company has been talked about for years, but it wasn't until the two worked together last summer on the Children's Theatre Company's production of 'RENT' that they decided it was time. Ben, an actor frequently featured in Chanhassen Dinner Theatre productions such as 'Footloose' and 'Jesus Christ Superstar' and John, a local voice coach who counts two time Tony nominated Broadway actress Laura Osnes as a former student; have chosen Jason Robert Brown's cult hit 'The Last Five Years' as their debut production.
