A Lutheran take on the classical "hero" journey, RISE UP, O MEN is the story of men (and women) who become larger than themselves; it's the story of a group of farmers and John Deere dealers, and church basement ladies, who rise to the requirement of heroism in order to help their community and its future. RISE UP, O MEN is a new musical featuring the men of the church and your favorite church basement Ladies who serve them. The year is 1964, in the basement kitchen of the Lutheran Church in rural Minnesota. As these hard-working farmers discuss their scrap lumber piles and their tractors and preparations for the Centennial Celebration, they unintentionally disrupt the order of the kitchen...but that's what happens when you let the roosters in the hen house.

  • Drama

From its opening image in a brash spotlight, The American Clock stiches a fabric of brief scenes performed as a lively vaudeville punctuated with songs, and dance accompanied by an ensemble of talented actors who double as musicians. With melodies like Million Dollar Baby, Sunny Side of the Street, and S’Wonderful, Arthur Miller’s “brilliant theatrical kaleidoscope of Great Depression throbs with joy, laughs and heartache.” As the 2008 recession’s sting is still being felt, The American Clock resonates today with its cautionary tale as well as a renewal of hope. The American Clock opens April 13 playing through April 23 at the Guthrie Theater’s Dowling Studio, and is performed by the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater BFA 2017 graduating class under the direction of Joseph Price.

“You there! Dickens! Dickens, the Christmas Man! With your Scrooge and your Spirits and sudden conversions! Why do you make up such stories?

The taunter is a scraggly, smelly twelve year old boy, one Algernon Charles Swinburne, perched naked atop a graveyard wall. The target of his tirade: Charles Dickens, author, journalist, would-be thespian, and summer neighbor of Swinburne’s parents on the Isle of Wight. This unpleasant encounter between two giants of world literature—one in middle age, the other yet to write the verses that would make his name—spur Dickens to write a tale that takes up Swinburne’s challenge.

To Begin With is the fascinating story of his struggle to create a personal adaptation of the Biblical Gospels to be performed for his children on Christmas Eve 1849. Amid distractions from his family, Swinburne and his own insecurities, he wrestles with how to present the story of Jesus Christ to a brood that ranges from 2 to 10 years of age.

Though he never intended this work to published, the Dickens family agreed to publish it as The Life of Our Lord in 1934 (sixty four years after his death). It is on this book that the one-man play is imagined. It’s a witty, insightful and thoroughly enjoyable look into the mind of a great writer.

Presented by Theatre Novi Most
  • Drama

Following our acclaimed staging of THE SEAGULL by Anton Chekhov, Theatre Novi Most will present another classic of the European theatrical canon with this complex drama by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, adapted and directed by TNM co-founder Vladimir Rovinsky. The story follows master architect Halvard Solness (Pearce Bunting) and his wife Aline (Barbra Berlovitz) through an existential mid life crisis involving past losses that still haunt and profound fear about the future. The challenges of a bright young woman (Shelby Richardson) seem to bring some answers. But as always, Ibsen keeps us in suspense. This story is highly charged with secret desires, stunning poetic language, Freudian and Nietzschean motives and… there is that troll.

Founded in 1998 by Russian director Vladimir Rovinsky and American director Lisa Channer, Theatre Novi Most is based in Minneapolis and consists of associate artists from New York, Los Angeles, Russia and Minneapolis. Since 1998 we have worked to adapt or create new works for the stage through a rigorous and expansive process of exploration and improvisation. Our methodology combines Russian theatre techniques and traditions and physical theatre methods from the U.S. and Europe as well as integration of story and narratives through playwriting. Our plays tend to use multiple languages and theatrical traditions allowing language to exist side by side with physical expression in the communicating of stories and ideas.
