Picking Up Crumbs: Winter Theater Picks

7 Jan

Time once again to to get over our winter of discontent and see some shows, and once again, time to opine as to what shows to get out into the bitterness to see. This piece for the A.V. Club has the recommendations but there were a couple that didn’t make the list for reasons of space and conflict of interest (i.e. shamelsss self-promotion). Before you point out the obvious, of course Rent is the perfect companion for La Bohéme, but at the time of this writing, the cast for Rent hadn’t come out yet and well, if you missed that show this year, someone would remount it pretty soon anyway. However, now that Sotarican star Maria Isa is on board, we are intrigued, and more than happy to go in for some 90s nostalgia and B’way bliss. The other thing that didn’t get a mention but you should go to is The Thing, which I can’t tell you much about but is the long-in-the-works project of a fabulously talented group of theater artists to be delivered in an art installation basement to very select groups of audiences. You should be in one of those audiences.

The final duality that didn’t get a mention in the A.V. Club piece because cas’ company Lamb Lays with Lion is involved in both of them, are the Singled Out Festival at the Guthrie in late January and Minneapolis New Breed at the Southern Theatre in February. Both are programs featuring rising Twin Cities companies and Lamb Lays with Lion is producing new work for both- a hard rock magic show The Black Arts for the Guthrie and a decidedly confrontational take on Anton Chekhov’s classic with Lamb Lays with Lion vs. Katie Mitchell’s The Seagull, and they should both be worth your coin, if I do say so myself.
