Who says the Minne-apple is the lesser sibling of the Big Apple? We bring the essence of New York to our favorite Minne-apple-tans May 4-8 with Nicholas Leichter Dance's urbanized spunky version of The Whiz: Moneyapolis. It's dance. It's song. It's theatre. It's SHOWBIZ, baby! Combining sounds of funk and hip-hop with Obama politics, throwing in a seasoning dash of drag, psychedelic, house, postmodern, and contemporary, this evening-length performance discourages labels and embraces all else.
Another exciting aspect of this show is the venue. We've got a new experience for you with Intermedia Arts. In their own words, they are "Minnesota's premier multidisciplinary, multicultural arts organization." Their mission? "To be a catalyst that builds understanding among people through art." Northrop's mission is all about engaging a community through the performing arts we present, so we think our organizations' missions blend pretty well - and we hope you think so, too.
