Weekend outlook: oh so sexy


Anna Sundberg as the Sexy Librarian

Sexy Librarian by Joking Envelope Productions

A meek librarian lives in quiet frustration until she finds an ancient tome with a horrible spell and transforms herself into a beautiful monster. Whip off your glasses and shake out your hair for this stereotype-smashing twist on the classic Jekyll and Hyde tale. A rock musical about fantasy, obsession, and rockin’ the bookmobile after hours. Get ready for the total opposite of quiet in the library. Through Saturday May 21 at Minneapolis Theatre Garage.

Caw! Caw! Caw! A river of crows brings rising energy. The crows proclaim demands and dreams. That’s right, “Caws to Unite!” is the theme of this year’s May Day Parade. The 1pm parade, featuring original puppetry by In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre is followed by a celebration and festival in Powderhorn Park.

Now Eye See You, Now Eye Don’t

What’s it like for a visual artist to go blind? Inspired by Off-Leash Area Co-Artistic Director Paul Herwig’s own challenges with vision loss, “Now Eye See You, Now Eye Don’t” is the story of a successful visual artist who goes blind–a darkly comic production with big choreographed dance numbers, plenty of humor, and a universal story of loss, dignity and hope. Performances at the Ritz Theater through May 7.

Want to get to know the St. Paul art scene in a day? Then check out the St. Paul Art Crawl, featuring the work of more than 300 artists showing in galleries and open studios. Think of it as a farmers’ market for art.

First it was a compelling memoir, then a successful Broadway play. Nimbus Theatre presents “The Year of Magical Thinking” starring local doyenne Barbara Berlovitz in the role of Joan Didion.

Face it – spring has been an eternity in the making this year. Get your fill of fresh flowers and bright colors this weekend at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts’ annual Art In Bloom, featuring the arrangements of more than 150 floral artists, paired with the works of art that inspired them.

So, what are you doing this weekend?
