Warm Dark Dust
This unique production, produced and directed by the company’s artistic director and founder, Judy Cooper Lyle, is a jazz music and dance interpretation of the poetry of Langston Hughes. Original music, and music from the 1920s, ’30s, and ’40s add to the spice of a selection of Mr. Hughes’ pieces in four segments, The Blues, Night Life, Dance, and Love & Sex. A corps of six able dancers, two vocalists, three musicians, and the main character playing Langston Hughes have created a show to remember. Florence Lyle is responsible for the masterful choreography, and Joey Schad directs the music. Tickets:

Guthrie Theatre

A play that follows a Jewish brothel owner and the lesbian romance between his daughter and a prostitute, “Indecent” charts the journey of a drama upheld as a groundbreaking piece of Jewish literature by some, and an act of obscenity by others. An ensemble of seven actors and three musicians portrays more than 40 roles to shed light on one of the most fascinating scandals in theater history.

A boisterous family drama.
There’s something old, something new and something borrowed in this feisty, heart-warming play about a Zimbabwean-American family preparing for their daughter Tendi’s wedding. Marvelous and Donald have built their American dream in Minnesota, so when Tendi requests a traditional African blessing before marrying her white fiancé from Minnetonka and a surprise guest drops a bombshell, the rehearsal dinner can’t come soon enough. Family fireworks are interwoven with questions of cultural identity in this acclaimed play.
