See Mary Poppins at Artistry MN through Sunday! Read the Twin Cities Theater Bloggers reviews below along with an interview with Becca Hart who plays Mary Poppins by Brett Talk!
The magic is strongest on stage when Ms. Becca Hart is on it. Hart, who plays the title role, is not just “practically perfect in every way” but is perfect in every way. Hart is whimsically delightful and completely makes the role her own. - Brett Talk Read more: https://bit.ly/2C0wWD7

TCTB Review Roundup: God of Carnage at Lyric Arts

Don't miss God of Carnage at Lyric Arts through October 28th! It is Twin Cities Theater Blogger, Brett Talk's favorite!
God of Carnage is a brilliantly written play, as I’ve said it’s my favorite because the nature in which it’s written. Reza has you on the edge of your seat through the whole 90 minutes. - Brett Talk Read more: https://bit.ly/2EzigOv
It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cringe, it might even make you recoil in disgust at times. In other words, it's a fun night at the theater. But it plays through next weekend only, so make your plans to head to Anoka soon (which I hear is the Halloween capital of the world, so October is not a bad time to visit). 🎃 - Cherry and Spoon Read more: http://bit.ly/cs_carnage

Frankenstein: Playing with Fire at Guthrie Theater🔥

What does it mean to be alive??? 

Read what the Twin Cities Theater Bloggers are saying about the retelling of this 200-year-old classic tale.

The acting is superb; the blocking is dynamic and full of energy, yet you can feel the weight of time on the two rivals as they seek answers to the questions that have defined their existence for so many years. - PhenoMNal Twin Cities
