The Sleeping Beauty in the Wood

Collective Unconscious Performance is a local company that is quite small, fairly new, and quite ambitious. They take as their goal “to re-imagine stories from our ‘collective unconscious’ (such as fairy tales or myth) with a bold, contemporary perspective.” With the world premiere of their latest show, The Sleeping Beauty in the Wood, they show that they…

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

By Anne Skonieczny   The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is unpleasant—in the best possible way. Tasked with telling a story filtered through the “extraordinary mind” of a teenage boy named Christopher (who appears to fall somewhere on the autism spectrum), the play creatively uses sound, light, choreography, and set design to…

Cabaret

by ERIKA SASSEVILLE I’ll admit, I may have been a terrible theater major. Before this week, I’d never seen Cabaret, either in film or on stage. Even so, my companion and I were blown away by Roundabout Theatre’s production playing through October 23 at the Orpheum Theatre. Cabaret premiered on Broadway in 1966 and picked up eight…

In one of the most powerful moments of playwright Jeanne Sakata’s one-man show Hold These Truths, Gordon Hirabayashi realizes that his and his family’s faces are the faces of the enemy. By accident of race and ancestry, they are now the dangerous and unwelcome Other. Hold…

A commission to write a play about the sustainability of Maine’s fisheries led to this work, which imagines a future world in which much…

Ragtime

Despite having been a Twin Cities theatre-goer for years now, last night’s performance of Ragtime was the first time I had ever seen a show by local favourite Theater Latté Da. Nuts, I know, but at least I finally got there. And it seemed like fortuitous timing that I should finally see the much-praised company at their first…
