Sorry to be so tardy in responding. I'm pretty much up for anything, but I'm most strongly interested in the Jungle and Live Action Set shows. And a couple more to throw into the mix:

August Wilson's Gem of the Ocean (Penumbra production at the Guthrie) running April 22-May 18
Sense and Sensibility (Cromulent Shakespeare Company at the Black Forest Inn) running April 4-26

Hope to meet you all at some gatherings!

Dear Theater Mavens:
 
On Friday, March 21, a subset of our theater meetup group will be gathering for the first time since last fall to see King Lear at Old Arizona. Our new organizer, Tammy, has proposed that we talk about the upcoming calendar after the play. To facilitate that discussion, and to encourage input from those unable to attend on Friday, I am listing 11 productions that will be running between now and the end of April (and beyond for some). I chose them because I have already agreed to volunteer at some (dates noted) or have sent out a request to volunteer. I encourage you to check their websites, any reviews you can find online or in print, and your calendars; and to advocate for your preference(s). I have no opinion as to how many events might be prudently scheduled each month, but if enthusiasm is reasonably high I don't think two is too many. (Drum roll...) The list:
 
(1)   Illusion Theater (www.illusiontheater.org) -- Mrs. Mannerly (March 14 - April 12)(I'm working on March 27 and April 5.)
(2)   Frank Theatre (www.franktheatre.org) --Brecht's Mr. Puntila and His Hired Man Matti (March 20 - April 13)(Kitty [assistant organizer] and I are working at the 2 p.m. performance on March 30.)(Interesting note: this will be performed "off site" in the Bridge Building at the City of Minneapolis Public Works yard at 1901 East 27th Street, which will be razed following the last performance.)
(3)   Theatre Pro Rata (www.theatreprorata.org) -- Metamorphoses (March 21 - April 6)
(4)   Jungle Theater (www.jungletheater.org) -- 2007 Pulitzer winner Rabbit Hole (March 28 - May 11)
(5)   Interact Center for the Visual & Performing Arts (www.interactcenter.com) -- Broken Brain Summit (April 3 - 26 at Old Arizona)(Interesting note 1: Interact focuses on disability issues and includes members of the disability community in its productions.)(Interesting note 2: The play, which opened at the Fringe last summer, was scripted by our very own Amy Salloway [aka Puffpastry].)(Interesting note 3: As a bonus, the first two weekends [April 4 - 5 and 11 - 12] will feature late night performances of Amy's Fringe hit Circumference following Broken Brain Summit.)
(6)   Cricket Productions at Mixed Blood Theatre (check www.mixedblood.com) -- Exit Strategy (April 8 - May 4)
(7)   Southern Theater (www.southerntheater.org) -- Live Action Set's The Piano Tuner (April 10 - 13)(I'm working on April 11.)
(8)   Park Square Theatre (www.parksquaretheatre.org) -- Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill (April 11 - May 4)(Interesting note: Park Square holds a week of previews before officially opening their productions, and on the Tuesday of that preview week the show is priced at $.99 on a no reservation/first come-first serve basis. Lady Day's $.99 preview is on Tuesday, April 15, at 7:30 p.m. That may ease Tax Day.)
(9)   Red Eye Theater (www.redeyetheater.org) -- Have You Seen Steve Steven? (April 18 - May 4)
(10) Open Eye Figure Theatre (www.openeyetheatre.org) -- Dancing With Contagion (April 18 - May 11)
(11) Gremlin Theatre (www.gremlin-theatre.org) -- Everywhere Signs Fall (April 18 - May 11)
 
That's all for now. Should the group take off, I'm willing from time to time to share the list of productions at which I'm volunteering. As mentioned before, I'm also willing to respond to any email queries about volunteering. It's cheap, easy, and enjoyable.
 
The codger in the corner,
Scott Jackson
