Twerking Around the Christmas Tree

Brave New Workshop Downtown Stage : 8:00 p.m. every Fri. until January 31; 5:00 p.m. every Sat. until January 31

Though promoted as a breezily irreverent comedy revue, the Brave New Workshop's annual holiday show can also be counted upon to provide a suitably absurd chronicle of our fleeting cultural obsessions. One needn't possess a sociology degree, for example, to surmise the farcical inspiration... More >>

The Singles Exchange No. 2

Bryant-Lake Bowl Theater : 6:00 p.m. February 3

We all have that person in our life: attractive, intelligent, full of idiosyncrasies.

MN Opera: The Elixir of Love

Ordway Center for the Performing Arts : 2:00 p.m. every Sun. until February 1; 8:00 p.m. January 31

The enduring appeal of Gaetano Donizetti's The Elixir of Love can be attributed to an endearing storyline (subsequently lifted by countless rom-coms) in which a poor but virtuous peasant, Nemorino, falls in love with the wealthy Adina.

I Need To Be Somewhere

Rosalux Gallery : Every Sat., Sun. until January 31

Once you meet Daniel Buettner, or friend him on Facebook, his art starts to make sense. He's one of the funniest people around, with an anachronistic sense of humor just on the safe side of out-of-bounds. Now look at his work: mysterious, layered, painted backgrounds out of which a clearly... More >>

Park Square Theatre : 7:30 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until February 8; 2:00 p.m. every Sat., Sun. from January 31 until February 8

The precision footwork that allows boxers to deftly avoid blows is a skill that rhapsodic sports columnists often compare to dancing.
