Art  
Theatre Coup d'Etat at Muse Event Center Art
 
Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play and Olivier Award for Best Comedy, 'Art' begins by asking an age-old question - what IS art?

As their arguments become less theoretical and more personal, the conversation becomes filled with that which should never be said among friends.
   
Boeing Boeing  
Minneapolis Theatre Garage Boeing Boeing
 
It's 1960, and Parisian lothario Bernard has it good. His three fiancées -- one Italian, one German and one American -- are all beautiful airline hostesses with frequent (but never overlapping) layovers in Paris. And thanks to Bernard's faithful maid, who swaps out the photographs in his apartment according to schedule, the women will never find out about each other. That is until a new, faster Boeing jet throws the airline schedules out of whack and Bernard finds himself with all three women on his hands at once. Add Bernard's friend -- who's hilariously bad at keeping all the lies straight -- to the mix, and the whole plan is poised to fall apart. This slapstick farce from French playwright Marc Camoletti has been performed in London and on Broadway and was made into a 1965 film starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis -- now you can laugh along with this Torch Theater Company production at the Minneapolis Theatre Garage.
   
Death Tax  
Pillsbury House Theatre Death Tax
 
A suspenseful and captivating dark comedy, Death Tax takes a sharp look at the tensions between family and money, life and death. Weeks before the New Year (and with it, the new estate tax), the wealthy but declining Maxine is convinced that her estranged daughter is bribing Nurse Tina to expedite her demise. So Maxine makes an enticing offer of her own that puts Nurse Tina at a moral crossroads. If Maxine is still alive come January 1, she will give Nurse Tina a substantial under-the-table bonus that could reunite her with her son in Haiti. But if Maxine's daughter or one of the other nurses catches them, they'll both lose everything they hold dear.

Good People  
Lyric Arts Main Street Stage Good People
 
The haves and the have-nots come face-to-face in the Broadway hit Good People. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole), this Tony-nominated dramatic comedy finds struggling single mother Margie Walsh laid off from her job at the dollar store and left with the reality that her South Boston neighborhood is providing the same level of opportunity it always has: none. It's the kind of place where, for many people, this month's paycheck covers last month's bills -- and bingo is a big night out on the town. Facing eviction, Maggie's forced to turn to an old high school flame for help. But he's now a successful physician living in the suburbs ... and Margie is way out of her element. With a keen eye for character and an uncanny sense of humor, this Lyric Arts Main Street Stage production of Good People explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakable hope that come with having next to nothing in America.
   
Hollywoodland  
Southern Theater Hollywoodland
 
Experience all the glitz and glamour of the golden age of Hollywood infused with modern verve in Hollywoodland, a new original show from the Main Street School of Performing Arts in collaboration with alumni and local artists. Combining theater, music and dance, this show pays homage to the spirit of the '30s and '40s, a time that gave us large-scale spectacles like MGM musicals and movie stars that became immortal icons. But Hollywoodland also puts a modern spin on the nostalgia, exploring some of the stories that may have gone untold in the old days. Relive the magic as this all-singing, all-dancing spectacle comes to The Southern Theater in Minneapolis.
   
Huck Finn  
Children's Theatre Company Huck Finn
 
Run away with rapscallions Huck and Jim, finding hijinks and history and hilarity, all wrapped up in one unbreakable friendship. Director Greg Banks (Pinocchio and Robin Hood) has thunk up some whip-smart action and crackling dialogue, with three agile, high-energy actors muscling up Mark Twain’s masterwork, transforming from character to character before your eyes. We reckon it’s ’bout the best time a “sivilized” soul can have, outside of floating down the Mississip’ on a handmade raft.
   
If You Don't Weaken

In this contemporary twist on the well-known classics, Director Peter Rothstein sets Sondheim's fairytale mashup in a Bavarian beer garden in this highly theatrical tour-de-force.
   
Late Nite Catechism  
Plymouth Playhouse Late Nite Catechism
 
Sunday school it's not -- Late Nite Catechism is a hilarious two-act solo performance that's part catechism class from back in the day, part stand-up routine. Dressed in her head-to-toe habit, Sister will take you back to a time when Mass was in Latin, Fridays were meatless and "discipline" was measured out in smacks of a ruler. During this interactive comedy in which the audience becomes Sister's class, she will reward her "charges" for correct answers with religious trinkets like glow-in-the-dark rosaries and holy cards. But naughty students better watch out: they may well find themselves on stage, sitting in the corner reflecting upon their sins both venial and mortal.
   
The Life Impromptu  
Yes Anderson at HUGE Improv Theater The Life Impromptu
 
Starting from only an audience-supplied title, the cast of The Life Impromptu spontaneously spins out a never-seen-before-or-again narrative in the style of filmmaker Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore, etc.). A follow-up to last year's acclaimed, totally sold out hit Darjeeling Unscripted.
