One Island, Two Love Stories, and Three Possible Dads
Mamma Mia opened February 18th, at the Orpheum Theater in Minneapolis. As it opened with the musical break, the audience was already nodding their heads to catchy beat. Mamma Mia is bright, spirited, and a fun time for all who attend.
Mamma Mia is the story of Sophie and her mother Donna who live on a small Greek island. Donna has done everything on…Continue

Mama Mia! Review
Mama Mia! at the Orpheum theatre on Tuesday night was exactly what the audience was anticipated. This well loved musical takes place on a Greek Island where a twenty year old woman, Sophie (Chelsea Williams), is about to get to get married to a man, Sky (Chris Stevens), who her Mother, Donna (Georgia Kate Haege), does not approve of. Donna raised Sophie on her own…Continue

Having been a fan of the movie for a number of years, I was very excited to see Mamma Mia at the Orpheum Theatre on Tuesday, Feburary 18. The show turned out to be overall very good and I really enjoyed going. Mamma Mia is set on a Greek Island, where Donna Sheridan and her daughter Sophie run a resort. Sophie is set to be married the next to a man named Sky, and because she wants her father to walk her down the aisle, she invites her three possible dads, whom she discovered in her mother's…Continue

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. Mamma Mia feels like a classic musical even though it’s only been around for 14 years. Even with it being ABBA’s 40th Anniversary, the 70’s music is still relatable, pulling you in, filling the stage with energy. The story is full of humor, while still having content, you can’t help but get into this…Continue

Mamma Mia packs a punch from beginning to end. The level of energy throughout this production is bursting at the seams. Mamma Mia is about a young girl that invites three men to her wedding hoping to find which one of them is her father. This show is told through music based on the works of ABBA. You don’t want to miss this; Mamma Mia is playing at the Orpheum Theatre until February 23rd.
The roles of Tanya (Gabrielle Mirabella) and Rosie (Carly Sakolove) were…Continue

For starters, I’ve heard many opinions about this show. Some were positive and others were very negative about it. I went in with an open mind hoping that the show would spark some interest. Waiting for the curtain to go up I noticed around me that there were many families there. There were many eager mothers waiting to hear classic songs from Abba. I got a very positive vibe looking around the theater.
From the opening performance, I was pleased with the…

I knew going in what to expect- a romantic comedy with little to no substance and a simple message. The plot is bubbly and cheesy, following a Greek 20 year old girl named Sophie. Getting married tomorrow, Sophie made sure to invite everyone- including her dad. Which would be a no brainer... if she knew who her father was. Snooping through her mothers diary she found three possible dads- Harry Bright, Bill Austin, and Sam Carmichael- each with a unique personality to match. All three arrive…Continue
On Sunday, January 16th I went to go see Minneapolis Musical Theater Company's production of Five Course Love at the New Century theater.
Going to see shows at the New Century is always interesting for me, because it is the space my school uses for its shows, and I've performed on the stage before. Granted this is the case, I haven't seen too many shows aside from the ones my school has put on, on the stage. The only other show I'd seen there was a Fringe play, and it had a…Continue

Some musicals are universally loved while others are on a person to person basis. Depending on what you like in a musical it is a hit or miss in the case of Five Course Love which I had the pleasure of viewing at the New Century Theatre on February 15th. Five Course Love is a…Continue

As Valentine’s Day fluff goes, “Five Course Love” is an excellent comedy. Minneapolis Musical Theatre outdoes itself on all fronts, showcasing its capacity for outstanding acting, powerful singing, elaborate costuming, and creative use of set. If the stories are a bit lackluster and the plots have some holes--well, it’s Valentine’s Day, isn’t it? Most of us can handle great entertainment with little intellectual appeal, at least on this one occasion.…Continue

Hennepin Theatre Trust and Minneapolis Musical Theatre’s production of Gregg Coffin’s Five Course Love played at the New Century Theatre from January 24th thru February 16th 2014.
The show was made up of an energetic cast of three, a live band, also of three, and a couple of stagehands who helped make the scene transitions smooth.
The set, being the first thing any audience member would see upon entering the theater to take in this show, presented a wonderful precursor to…
Five Course Love
A ‘Tasty’ Musical Comedy
Gregg Coffin’s Five Course Love on Saturday, Feburary 8th at the New Century theatre was the perfect show for Valentine’s Day. The show had a cast of only 3 people; Ryan Grimes, Joseph Pyfferoen and Amanda Weis. Each of these talented professionals played 5 different rolls during the performance- since there were 5 different…Continue
For anyone who loves Bill Nye, and loves to eat, Alton Brown is your guy. His Food Network television shows are akin to Bill Nye, only all about cooking, and obviously aimed towards a more adult audience. 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
