New Video: Interview with THE AGITATORS

Two Ivey award winning actors, Mikell Sapp and Emily Gunyou Halaas, take on major roles as Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony in The Agitators.

Critics have high praise of this pair. Of their performances, the Star Tribune writes, “beautifully performed… the pair infuse historical material with conviction and pathos.” Rob Hubbard in the Pioneer Press writes, “strong, stubborn, vulnerable and compassionate, Halaas’ Anthony is astonishing. It’s one of the most commanding performances I’ve experienced on a Twin Cities stage this year,” and “Sapp offers a well-drawn portrayal of a man balancing confidence and doubt, hopefulness and regret.” 

Watch this video to hear a bit of these two marvelous actors speaking in their own voices and from their hearts about how this play relates to their lives and what it asks of us today.

The Agitators is on stage through October 28. Get your tickets HERE now!

New Video: The Women of BASKERVILLE

New Video: The Women of BASKERVILLE

Women have been winning over Holmes fans in recent years, and in our current production Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery, Park Square is continuing the conversation with women playing both Sherlock Holmes and John Watson.

Here is a sneak peak of this perfectly contrasting pair. As Lisa Brock in the Star Tribune writes, “McKenna kelly -Eiding perfectly embodies Holmes’ authoritative manner and sly condescension while Sara Richardson, one of the Twin Cities’ finest clowns, delivers a delightfully wide-eyed Dr. Watson.” Director Theo Langason shares what changes it took (or didn’t) to adapt the play for these two fine actors!

The game is afoot, hilariously! Get your tickets now to see these two in action for yourself!
