Related: 40x40 List
Date completed: Saturday, December 12, 2015
In our early days of dating, Scott and I went to the Brave New Workshop (BNW) quite a bit at their former theater location (2605 Hennepin Avenue, Minnneapolis). To rekindle our relationship with BNW, I included a trip to their new theater at 824 Hennepin Avenue on the 40x40 list.
Though it was more out of procrastination than an intentional decision, I'm glad we waited for the holiday show--the website description of of annual event speaks to me:
The Brave New Workshop's holiday show is a cherished annual event for those most likely to wind up on the 'naughty' list.
This year's show, The Trump Who Stole Christmas was a great way to continue the irreverent holiday celebrations that we kicked-off the previous week at The New Standards Holiday Show. If you're going to be in the Twin Cities between now and January 30, you should go buy tickets to The Trump Who Stole Christmas. If you won't be going, read this Star Tribune review by Rohan Preston which is a better recap than I'd be able to write.
The BNW cast and crew are extremely talented and somehow manage to make time to engage with their audience on Twitter. A few of them liked my tweet documenting the moment when a woman in the crowd got excited by the mere mention of a country-themed restaurant. Perhaps that's her way of grieving the closure of the St. Louis Park location?
As is the case with many of my 40x40s, I definitely want to boost our support of BNW. At a minimum I'd like to go to the holiday show but hope to catch shows throughout the year.
