Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley

It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a “Christmas at Pemberley” play performed at the Jungle Theater, must be, in fact, delightful. For the third year in a row, Jungle Theater presents a Christmas tale set in the world of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon. Playing now through December 29th, Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley reunites much of the original 2017 cast and creative team for a rousing, hysterical, and joyous affair. 

Hamilton

In 2009 Lin-Manuel Miranda performed a new piece at a White House Poetry Jam for the newly elected President Barack Obama. He nervously told the audience that he had been working on a hip-hop concept album based on the life of a man whom he believed “embodied hip-hop.” That man was an immigrant, a Founding Father, a Secretary of the Treasury: Alexander Hamilton (played on the tour by Joseph Morales). In the end, he created a musical that blended hip-hop, R&B, rap, blues, jazz, and the broadway sound and went on to win 11 Tony Awards. Now on its second national tour, Hamilton will be playing at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis through October 7th.
