Directed by Angela Timberman
Comedy
Andy Boss Thrust Stage

The 2 Sugars, Room for Cream team continue their comedic conversations about life, during that “little sliver of time in a woman’s life when you can either get pregnant or break a hip.” When there’s wine, the stories flow – from celebration and joy to nostalgia and regret (and sometimes questionable text messages). Laugh along as you bond over life’s funny circumstances.

Susan B. Anthony, a famed suffragette, and Frederick Douglass, a former slave who became a renowned civil rights leader, were friends and allies–and sometimes, adversaries. This is the story of their enduring and tempestuous 45-year friendship, from the Civil War through the changing of the Constitution. They agitated the nation, they agitated each other and today, they challenge and inspire us.

Bringing fierce guitar playing and swing to gospel music, Sister Rosetta Tharpe influenced rock musicians from Elvis to Jimi Hendrix and Ray Charles. The story begins in a funeral parlor in Mississippi, as Rosetta and her young protégé, Marie Knight, prepare for a tour that will establish them as a great musical duo. Hear renditions of spirituals like “Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?” and “Sit Down,” to distinctly non-religious songs like “I Want a Tall Skinny Papa.”

Tragedy
Andy Boss Thrust Stage

The story begins with a motionless tableau, the actors frozen in mid-action, their faces conjuring an ancient frieze. At the snap of fingers, the spell is broken and the statues spring to life. And so, this classic story of civil disobedience unfolds. Theatre Coup d’Etat’s thoughtful approach juxtaposes the rituals of fate and sacrifice against the wounded family dynamic at the heart of this play. The results are powerful.” (Star Tribune)

It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year-old Marjorie – a jumble of disparate, fading memories – has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her.

This richly spare, wondrous new play explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits – if any –of what technology can replace.

Twenty years later, Frannie Foster Wallace still blames all her failures in life on losing out on the chance to become Jefferson’s Sparkling Junior Champion. Until now. Let the rematch begin!
