The idea of a Jane Austen novel getting the Savage Umbrella treatment is tantalizing to Megan Hadley, co-founder the Buoyant Theater Collective in St. Paul. Savage Umbrella's adaptation is called "Emma Woodhouse Is Not A Bitch," and it's on stage at the Cedar-Riverside People's Center Theater through Feb. 23. Megan is excited about the prospects for comedy, gender switcheroos, and portraits of class, political polarization, and love.

Minneapolis artist and Minneapolis Institute of Arts Senior Editor Jodie Ahern has high praise for "Print Profs: Recent Work by Minnesota Faculty." Highpoint Center for Printmaking's latest exhibition features a diverse array of print works from 17 different Minnesota art professors.

Minneapolis classical guitarist Tim Budge says taking his lady to see Russian guitar virtuoso Vladimir Gorbach at Hamline University's Sundin Music Hall Saturday night is like getting an extension on Valentine's Day. Tim, who's also a marketing and development associate at the Schubert Club, says Gorbach's interpretations of Astor Piazzola's compositions are exquisite. The concert is at 7:30pm and is sponsored by the Minnesota Guitar Society. For more Art Hounds' recommendations, check us out on Facebook and Twitter.
