10,000 Things Theater is starting up its 2007-08 season on October 18 with Richard III. Trust me when I say that this is some of the best theater in the Twin Cities and all the local theater critics agree. Most performances are for audiences with little access to theater. They perform at prisons, homeless shelters, nursing homes, etc. They do a few public performances to raise some money. You can see Richard III At Open Book and the MN Opera Center. Tickets are about $20.
Open Book, 8pm: November 2-4, November 9-11, November 16
MN Opera Center, 8pm: November 17-18
But if you really want to experience what they are about, check the Web site closer to October and there should be a listing of public (and free) performances at shelters of various types around the Twin Cities. It’s worth it.
In February they will perform Eurydice and in April, Once on this Island. Check the site for details and watch for my reviews.
