The next few weeks of Twin Cities theatre are just lovely. In the depressing limbo between winter and spring, here are the shows that I’m planning to help carry me through!
To be honest, I can’t believe I haven’t seen this yet. Karyn & I are planning to make it though. I’m looking forward to a good laugh and another gem in the Guthrie’s 50th Anniversary season. Other Desert Cities is playing now at the Guthrie. Get your tickets here.

March 14- April 7
If you have heard the music from this show then it will be obvious as to why I am excited about this. The story is set in 1950’s Italy (sigh) and is a wonderful love story between the handsome, young Fabrizzio and an American tourist, Clara. This production is hosted at the Ordway and performed through Theatre Latte Da. Get your tickets, but watch out, you’ll be in the mood for love after this!
Now – April 6
Ah, Shakespeare at the Guthrie. I’ve never been disappointed and I don’t anticipate either of these being any different. The Taming of the Shrew & Twelfth Night are playing at the Guthrie, performed by Propeller.
April 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20
While I am VERY excited for this, I am also a little bummed that this will mark the end of MN Opera’s 50th Anniversary season. Having said that, I trust that this will be MARVELOUS. If you have not made it to the opera this season, or ever for that matter, trust that you will not want to miss this. Turandot will be performed by the Minnesota Opera at the Ordway starting April 13. Check out more information about Turandot or buy tickets here.
Art in Bloom April 25-28 MIA
This is not a performance, but it is an event I that lives on my calendar every year. For me, nothing says spring in the Twin Cities like Art in Bloom at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. If you’ve never been, let me give you some insight. Art in Bloom is a yearly event in which florists recreate or are inspired by pieces of art at the MIA. The best and most unbelievable part- it is free! Mark your calendars and plan a trip to the MIA in April. Want more info? Check out the Art in Bloom page on ArtsMIA.org.
