Monday news and reviews

Mondays are in general pretty paltry, but there are still a few good stories to be had…

Architecture

Public gets a say on Peavey Plaza

- MaryAbbe, Star Tribune

Landscape architect candidates will do public interviews Tuesday.

Dance

Dances with elephants, seeking truth

- Caroline Palmer, Star Tribune

This appealing but odd work at the Southern Theater attempts to show that truth is something that blooms in our minds.

Music

- Rob Hubbard, Pioneer Press

Ludwig van Beethoven didn’t think small. Although the composer’s intimate works for solo piano may seem sonic worlds apart from his stormy symphonies, they often sound like they’re tackling similar big issues — the nature of life, love, God and the universe — but on a micro rather than macro level.

Theater

‘Favre’ fondue even funnier than last year’s holiday revue

- Rohan Preston, Star Tribune

The Brave New Workshop serves up a deliciously funny offering.
