Can’t make it to this installment of Variety in the Cities? Never fear! Performances are on the fourth Saturday of each month through November — same time, same place.
Not a fan of the opera? CARAG’s Bryant-Lake Bowl, 810 W. Lake St., is aching to change that. To accomplish their goal, they have brought back the show that moves at a breakneck pace of seven operas in 90 minutes — "Knock Knock! It’s Your Husband." That’s one opera every 12.8571 minutes!
Directed by East Isles’ Gary Briggle, the Theatrical Music Company’s four-person cast pledge to provide "opera at its most essential, direct and fall-down funny."
To witness this merger of opera and fast-forward fun, head down to the Bryant-Lake Bowl Theater Sunday, Feb. 23. The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 per person, and $10 per person for groups of 14 or more. Reservations are recommended; for more information, call 825-8949.
Fulton’s gallery360, 3011 W. 50th St., presents artist Yuri Arajs’ recent works in the new show, "Panorama: Modern Landscapes." With seemingly simple composition, Arajs’ works contrast unorthodox textures such as tar, concrete and buckshot tin.
Lyndale’s Olsa Thomason-Kuster, Lowry Hill East’s Matthew Rucker and Lowry Hill’s Melanie Pankau all have window displays in the accompanying "5-Foot Show" at gallery360 as well.
Both shows run through March 14, Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. (Thursdays until 8 p.m.) and Sunday, noon-5 p.m. Contact gallery360 at 925-2400 for more information.
‘Women of Mass Destruction’
Those looking for WMD (women of mass destruction) should head down to the Wedge’s Brave New Workshop, 2605 Hennepin Ave S.
On Fridays and Saturdays through April 10, the formidable, mass-destruction-prone Katy McEwen and Shanan Wexler, will present their sketch comedy, ‘Das Bootylicious or Women of Mass Destruction’ on "fear — irrational, neurotic or otherwise," with more than just a touch of satire and irreverence.
McEwen and Wexler are careful to note that, while obviously feminine perspectives are included, this is not an estrogen- overload night. "We really did NOT want to let this be some kind of …feminist treatise about periods and grrrl power," McEwen said.
Shows are Fridays at 8 p.m. and Saturdays at 7 and 10 p.m through April 10. Tickets are $15-$19 and are available at bravenewworkshop.com or by calling
