It’s late July. Yes, you could join in the shuffle out to the boring ol’ lake cabin and sit by a boring ol’ lake and have a boring ol’ bonfire and eat a boring ol’ hot dog … or, you could stay in town and sample some of the fun, anything-but-boring stuff F-M has to offer on a summer weekend. Stuff like:
ACT UP Theatre presents “Spring Awakening.” ACT UP will open Spring Awakening tonight at The Stage at Island Park. According to all-knowing Wikipedia, “Spring Awakening” is a musical adaptation of the 1891 play of the same name. (This version has music by Duncan Sheik of Barely Breathing fame, btw.) Catch the show before they take off for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.
Museum exhibitions. Plains Art Museum‘s summer shows include a solo show by Fargo abstract impressionist Marjorie Schlossman and an exhibition of the large, Luis Jiminez sculpture Sodbuster, San Isidro. The Rourke is currently showing In Real Time by Jonathan Twigley and the 53rd Annual Midwestern. At the HCSCC, the freshly opened Hjemkomst Sagas documents the 30th anniversary of the voyage of the Hjemkomst. You can also see the 19th Annual National Water Media Exhibition.
