Feb. 6-7 features the Walker commission
From March 18-20, five storytellers present Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell, combining excerpts from both familiar and never-seen works by the performer behind Swimming to Cambodia. Then in May, another Walker commission appears in the form of Truth, Revised Histories, Wishful Thinking, and Flat Out Lies, a dance piece by John Jasperse Company.
Whew. And we're leaving stuff out. In all, it's a remarkable season, full of music, dance, and theater from around the world, pretty much exploding with possibility. And a look at ticket prices puts things firmly in the $15-$25 range, in the reach of even the most determined cheapskate. You live in an affordable, world-class culture center, in so many words. Trek on upstairs at the Walker once or twice. You'll see things you didn't expect.
