Mamma Mia is a must see spectacle that has returned for the seventh time to the Orpheum Theater in Minneapolis. This show will be here through February 23.

However, his humor is riddled with fart and burp jokes that appeal to younger generations. His live tour is a combination of science, cooking, humor, and singing. It’s an enjoyable experience, and definitely something I’d recommend anyone to see should they get a…Continue
“Five Course Love” was an entertaining show. I was engaged through most of the performance and left the theatre in a positive mood. “Five Course Love” is production containing five different love scenarios in five different restaurants. It shows the many aspects of love from joyous discoveries to tragic mishaps and does so in a comical way. Showing at the New Century Theatre until February 16th this show is a great way to make your Valentine’s Day one to…Continue
