Next month, the lauded Broadway production of South Pacific
arrives at the Ordway
. For those who can't wait, a preview segment tops the list of attractions at this week's Sample Night Live
, the ongoing monthly variety show that draws from all walks of Twin Cities performing life.
The shows take place the first Wednesday of every month, and include a dozen short performances by local theater groups, musicians, dancers, and spoken word artists. Act One is billed as "G-Rated" (bring the kids), while Act Two is "unrated," implying the possibility of naughtiness.
Act One (G-Rated), 7:00 p.m.:
Rodgers & Hammerstein's South Pacific (directed by Bartlett Sher, a massive award winner on Broadway)
Act Two (Unrated), 8:15 p.m.:
(theater, currently performing Safe as Houses
, reviewed in the April 7 CP).
for Sample Night Live
are $20 ($10 students and seniors, $5 children age 5-12, free under 5). This month's performance is at the History Theatre
. For information call 651.788.5992.
