Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing At the Orpheum Theatre Is Not Nostalgic Enough

            The 80’s cult classic Dirty Dancing is now on stage at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, October 7th – 19th. Like all other 80s dance movies turned musical, it is campy, poorly written, and heaven for middle aged women.

            After the classic “It was the summer of 1963, and cell phones weren’t…

Shakespeare Apocalypse

Shakespeare Apocalypse at the Minnesota Fringe Festival

            There is a continuous battle fought by actors and high schoolers alike – understanding Shakespeare.

The Neverland Players At the Minneapolis Fringe Festival

The Neverland Players

The Neverland Players

            One of the most beautiful aspects about children is their imagination. Children’s imaginations run free, not yet wavered by experience and the realization that not everything is possible. Losing that imagination is one of the many tragedies of growing up and becoming aware of the world. Fortunately, The Neverland Players, performing in the Fringe Festival at the U…

Fireflower

Fireflower: An Original Musical Comedy

            Since 1983, most children share the experience of having played a Super Mario Bros. game at least once. The aim (to save Princess Peach), the obstacles (the Goomba and Koopa Troopa), and the upgrade items (such as FireFlower, coins, and Starman) are recognizable to most, whether or not they have played the game. The music, written by Koji Kondo, is widely…
