Art Hounds: What’s going on this weekend?


If you'd like dessert with your theater, get thee to Bedlam, which is hosting a production of King Lear. The catch is that each of the five acts is performed by a different theater company, and each company serves its own dessert to the audience. (What kind of dessert best suits a tragedy? A flambe? A trifle? A deflated souffle?)

If you're looking for laughs, Tom Segura is performing at the Acme Comedy club in Minneapolis, or you can see Harmon Leon in Ironic/Not Ironic at the Bryant Lake Bowl.

In the world of classical music, the SPCO is performing Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Ordway in St. Paul, while the Minnesota Orchestra performs Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky with Steven Hough at the piano.

And be sure to let me know - what are you doing this weekend?
