All American Boys

April 29 - May 22, 2022 • Ages 10+

By Jody Drezner Alperin and Vicky Finney Crouch | Based on the book by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely | Directed by Theo Langason and Cody R. Braudt

The journey of two teen boys and a life-altering incident

Twin Cities Premiere!

“At once timely and timeless, funny and wickedly smart... about what it means to be a young man in America— across lines of race—and what it means to be a GOOD person in America—across lines of Everything.” – Jacqueline Woodson

The lives of two high-school boys, one black and one white, powerfully intersect after a violent act of racially motivated police brutality. Unfolding through the boys’ alternating perspectives, the story follows their journey as they grapple with the devastating impact of racism as it reverberates through their families, school and town. Stages Theatre Company and Capri Theater are proud to bring this important play, based on the award-winning book by Brendan Kiely and National Book Award winner and Ambassador of Children’s Literature, Jason Reynolds, to Twin Cities audiences.

Presented by Theater Latté Da

Book by George C. Wolfe
Music by Jelly Roll Morton
Lyrics by Susan Birkenhead
Additional music and musical adaptation by Luther Henderson

Directed and Choreographed by Kelli Foster Warder
Music Supervision by Sanford Moore

Featuring Reese Britts and Andre Shoals

Born to a Creole family in turn-of-the-century New Orleans, Jelly Roll Morton was a classically trained pianist who was fascinated by the ragtime, blues and jazz sounds happening around him. From the back alleys of New Orleans to the dance halls of Chicago and the clubs of New York, the Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning JELLY'S LAST JAM tells the troubled story of the self-proclaimed inventor of jazz with spectacular dance breaks and a smokin’ jazz score.

Theater Latté Da is grateful for the generosity of our Production Sponsors, David Feroe and Linda Svitak.

HOUSEFUCKER

created by WeAreMarried

directed by Lizz Windnagel

featuring Jay Eisenberg and Shelby Richardson

Look at you, awake in your bed, wondering if the house you like actually likes you back.

Tossing and turning because you can't meet your house's needs.

Thrashing and gnashing because, let's face it, your house never comes first.

What an embarrassment! We know you just want to be alone in the home. Lucky for you, the uniquely qualified realtors at Beam & Bungalow are here to help. Join Shel Beam and Phil Bungalow for a minimally invasive open house where you'll learn our special techniques for understanding the traumas and dramas of buying, selling, and pleasuring the home. By the time you leave, you'll see houses in a whole new way, a way that makes you shout: "There's not a thing wrong with it!"

At just under an hour, this is a one tight tour that will leave you feeling real loose.

Collette’s battle with cancer forces her to confront a lifetime’s worth of regrets and face the fact that her smart, ambitious daughter Ree-Ree idolizes her “Aunt Jen” much more than herself. Jen is a successful lawyer who’s been unsuccessful in love and is coming to the realization that she may be forever single. Lively grandmother Mary Ann has a much younger boyfriend, Eric, who inadvertently makes her feel old, while Amy is coping with classic “Sandwich generation” challenges: an empty nest, an ailing parent, and a dull, unsatisfying marriage.

This incredible script will have you laughing until the moment you’re sobbing as a group of friends help one another navigate more than one kind of change of life in their 50s!

What will endure when the cataclysm arrives – when the grid fails, society crumbles, and we’re faced with the task of rebuilding? Can art remake a civilization? Mr. Burns propels us forward and imagines a future where Bart Simpson and the pop culture references of one era evolve into the mythology of another.

Tucker Lucas (The MajoritySantaland Diaries), production director said, “Mr. Burns is a show about a community living in a post-apocalyptic world where there is no more electricity and so to entertain each other the community members stage old episodes of The Simpsons as plays.” 

Performance Dates: May 6 – 22. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30 PM. Sunday matinees on May 15 and 22 at 2:00 PM.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.

To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top Forty score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.

Footloose first burst onto the silver screen in 1984 and proved to be one of the year’s most successful motion pictures. The soundtrack recording reached #1 on the Billboard charts, and went on to sell over 17 million copies worldwide, generating such Top Forty hits as its title song and “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” (both of which received Academy Award nominations), plus “Almost Paradise,” “Holding Out For A Hero,” and “I’m Free (Heaven Helps the Man).” With a screenplay and lyrics by Oscar winner Dean Pitchford, the story focused on young people, much like his previous, and wildly successful movie musical Fame.
