The irreverent interactive show Flanagan's Wake transports you to the fictional Irish village of Grapplin. Local roustabout Flanagan has died, and the villagers have gathered to grieve as only the Irish can. Put your mourning face on, and get ready to participate in this partially improvised comedic memorial with plenty o' pints, crazy sing-alongs and witty tales based on your -- and other audience members' -- suggestions. After 16 successful years in Chicago and a run off-Broadway, Flanagan's Wake returns to Minnesota, taking the stage at Cabaret Theater at CAMP Bar.
Based on a remarkable true story, Side Show follows the legendary Hilton twins, Daisy and Violet, as they rise from conjoined side-show attractions to Hollywood celebrities -- all the while searching for love and acceptance amidst the spectacle of fame and scrutiny under the spotlight. A one-of-a-kind tale told with refreshingly unsentimental honesty, the Broadway production was nominated for a number of Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. Now this scandalous and dramatic journey of self-discovery will tug at your heartstrings on the stage of the Ames Center's Black Box Theatre in Burnsville.
When a 20-year drought leads to a government ban on private toilets, a greedy company profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs -- until a hero decides he's had enough and rises up against the system. Urinetown is a musical, satirical tale of corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. The show's irreverent score gives a nod to musicals from Broadway to Brecht and Weill, and parodies musicals such as The Cradle Will Rock and Les Miserables. The winner of three Tonys and two Obie Awards during its original Broadway run, Urinetown can be enjoyed at Anoka's Lyric Arts Main Street Stage.
Alexander is having a bad day. A horrible day. A terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. In this delightful adaptation of her popular book, Judith Viorst sets Alexander's tumultuous life to music and brings to the stage one of America's feistiest characters. Alexander's struggles with life's daily dramas -- not only does Alexander wake up with gum in his hair, but his mother forgets to pack him dessert, and his best friend decides he's not his best friend anymore -- will not only entertain but educate young audiences as they identify with Alexander and the obstacles he encounters, encouraging them to share their feelings and to realize that bad days happen to the best of us. Presented at the Howard Conn Fine Arts Center in Minneapolis, this fun youth production will delight all ages.
Deemed "the greatest play of its time" by London's The Independent, Tom Stoppard's Arcadia crosses the boundaries of time to present big ideas and compelling characters. Set in a sprawling English country house, this Ames Center production moves between the 19th century and the present day, allowing the audience a fascinating glimpse at the romances and scandals hidden in the manor's history. As the action unfolds in both time periods, the characters -- even as they begin to share the same stage -- weave past each other in Arcadia's intricate dance, never able to connect because they are lost in time. Enjoy this intoxicating blend of comedy and tragedy at the Ames Center's Black Box Theatre in Burnsville.
