THE SHOW

The Crane Theater
2303 Kennedy St NE #120 Minneapolis, Minnesota 55413

Presented by E/D
  • Experimental

THE SHOW, a new contemporary performance by E/D, is a glitter bomb of feminine force that rips off the band-aid of pretense and lets the mess flow. Featuring E/D’s signature combination of journey, abstraction, and unforgettable imagery, THE SHOW is inspired by the angst of girlhood, the women we’ve always wanted to be, and how ugly things are always ugly, even when you cover them in sequins.

It’s loud. Unapologetic. Undeniably exciting. And is proudly made by women artists for everyone.

Created & Performed by Emily Michaels King and Debra Berger

All seating is general admission.

Opening Night: March 13
Pay What You Choose: March 16 and 18
Talkbacks: March 15, 16 and 18
Closing: March 22

Parking and the entrance to the theater are located at the back of the building. Look for the yellow door. There is also ample free street parking available in the evenings.

The Crane is a fully accessible venue. The main entrance is accessible via an external wheelchair lift. Once inside, the theaters, lobby, and restrooms are all at the same grade.

The Chameleon Theatre Circle presents

Vanishing Point

Book & Lyrics by Liv Cummins & Rob Hartmann; Music by Rob Hartmann; Original Concept & Additional Lyrics by Scott Keys

Directed by Kari Steinbach

Aviatrix Amelia Earhart, evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, and author Agatha Christie each vanished mysteriously: Agatha disappeared for eleven days; Aimee disappeared for three weeks; and of course Amelia vanished completely. Vanishing Point, a musical comedy-fantasy, brings these three women together as they solve the mystery of their disappearances from their own lives. The show has a cast of three: the women play not only their central role but also each others’ mothers, husbands, friends, reporters, and so on.

See this incredible performance on 12 select dates between March 6 and 22, 2020 at the Black Box Theatre inside the Bloomington Center for the Arts at 1800 W Old Shakopee Road.

Vanishing Point is a production of The Chameleon Theatre Circle and is part of the 2019-2020 Performance Series presented by Bloomington Center for the Arts, a division of the City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department.

Special Industry Night, Monday, March 16th-$15 use code "Playlist"

SEVEN is a riveting documentary play by seven female writers based on personal interviews with seven remarkable women who faced life-threatening obstacles before bringing heroic changes to their home countries of Pakistan, Nigeria, Ireland, Afghanistan, Guatemala, Russia and Cambodia.

Playwrights Carol K. Mack (who conceived the play), Anna Deavere Smith, Paula Cizmar, Catherine Filloux, Gail Kriegel, Ruth Margraff, and Susan Yankowitz collaborated to create a tapestry of stories that weave together the words of these women, dramatizing their struggles and triumphs over resistance, death threats, entrenched norms and pervasive violence. Since the premiere in 2008, the piece has been translated into 27 languages and performed worldwide in over 30 countries, sharing with an international audience these inspiring tales of bravery and perseverance.

SEVEN makes the powerful and timeless statement that even in the darkest times, one person, one voice, and a single act of courage, can change the lives of thousands.

SEVEN was created with the support of the Vital Voices Global Partnership, the preeminent non-governmental organization (NGO) that identifies, trains and empowers extraordinary women around the world by unleashing their leadership potential to transform lives and accelerate peace and prosperity in their communities. These women have returned home to train and mentor more than 500,000 additional women and girls in their communities. They are the Vital Voices of our time. Vitalvoices.org

Tickets found at theoshaughnessy.com or by calling the Box Office at (651)690-6700. Special discounted tickets of $15! Use the code "Playlist" at checkout. Find more information online here:https://theoshaughnessy.com/event/la-theatreworks-seven/
