The (Almost) Complete and (Mostly) Accurate History of Alcohol  
Brave New Workshop Comedy Theatre The (Almost) Complete and (Mostly) Accurate History of Alcohol
 
Booze, hooch, giggle juice, nectar of the gods -- whatever it's been called, people throughout history have loved their alcohol. From the ancient Greeks to Prohibition-era dames, right down to your uncle at Thanksgiving, the tempestuous history of humankind's love affair with alcohol comes to life in The (Almost) Complete and (Mostly) Accurate History of Alcohol at Brave New Workshop in Minneapolis. BNW alumni Josh Carson and Andy Rocco Kraft, creators of the comedy hits like A Very Die Hard Christmas, bring this hilarious new show to the stage, making a case for alcohol being the cause of and solution to every problem that's ever existed.
   
Age Against the Machine  
Brave New Workshop Comedy Theatre Age Against the Machine
 
Brave New Workshop is thrilled to kick off its 60th anniversary season with a best-of show, featuring flashbacks to some of its funniest and most relevant material from recent (and not so recent) stage shows. From sock hops to death drops, Age Against the Machine will bring the Minneapolis comedy theater troupe's funniest moments to the stage one more time. Watch BNW cast members Lauren Anderson, Denzel Belin, Ryan Nelson, Tom Reed and Melanie Wehrmacher remind you just why theirs is one of the longest running satirical theaters in the world.
   
Follies  
Bloomington Center for the Arts Follies
 
Follies features one of the most haunting and memorable scores by musical theater pioneer Stephen Sondheim. With hits such as "Losing my Mind" and "Broadway Baby," it begs the eternal question: how do we reconcile our past with our present? The year is 1971, and the Weismann Theater, once home to the iconic Weismann Follies, is set to be torn down. At a reunion of its former stars - a single night filled with nostalgia, champagne, and secrets - we see the bittersweet, long-lasting marriages of two couples held to task. Follies invites us all to take a closer look at how beautiful a life, long lived, can truly be.
   
The Pink Unicorn  
Illusion Theater The Pink Unicorn
 
It's one thing to watch Transparent and claim to be pro-LGBT, but the true test of acceptance comes closer to home. For Trisha, the single, Christian mother from Texas at the heart of the comedic one-woman show The Pink Unicorn, that test comes when her daughter announces that from now on she wants to be called Joey. Ivey Award-winning actress Kate Guentzel brings Trisha's journey to life as she stands up for her daughter in the face of discrimination and hate from their community. See this solo show at Illusion Theater in Minneapolis.
   
Tipsy Kangaroo's Naughty Puppet Revue  
Brave New Workshop Comedy Theatre Tipsy Kangaroo's Naughty Puppet Revue
 
Have you ever wondered what kind of things come out of the mouths of puppets -- what manner of unscripted "adult" quips may fly -- between takes on TV and film sets? Well, Tipsy Kangaroo's Naughty Puppet Revue is here to answer just that burning question. A puppet-packed, improv-heavy show performed by professionally trained puppeteers, some of whom have worked with The Muppets and Disney, this evening of grown-up entertainment at the Brave New Workshop ETC Theatre in Minneapolis unfolds based on your suggestions, giving you a glimpse behind the scenes that promises to be unlike anything you've ever seen before.
   
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee  
Merrill Community Arts Center The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
 
Six tween-aged overachievers. One grand prize trophy. Ten thousand incorrect words way to spell omphaloskepsis. The high-stakes world of middle school spelling competitions takes center stage -- along with a plethora of pubescent angst and awkwardness -- in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, the hit musical comedy about young would-be wordsmiths and their neurotic parents. While sharing funny and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of increasingly challenging words and learn that winning doesn't have to be the only definition of success. Putnam was nominated for Best Musical and five other Tonys in its original run, winning for Best Book. Now Woodbury Community Theatre brings this fun musical smash to the Black Box Theater stage at Merrill Community Arts Center.
   
The Wolves  
Jungle Theatre The Wolves
 
From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, a girls' high school soccer team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vigor of a pack of teen warriors. At its most straightforward, The Wolves is a fly-on-the-wall look at the team as they go through a series of their pre-game warm-ups. Beyond the surface, however, is the thoughtful and eloquent way the play delineates each of the young women in the space of 90 minutes and six scenes.
