Reviews:
“This cast is incredible, top notch, fantastic, great, spectacular, riveting, jaw quivering, heart pounding, good. Basically, what I’m saying is: Do not miss this show!”
- Sarah McPeck of Twin Cities Gay Scene

“Even though I’ve seen Hedwig several times, I’ve never seen it quite like this, which is truer to its original form than the recent Broadway hit.”
- Jill of Cherry and Spoon

“An absolutely magical and brilliant performance of Hedwig!! …this entire cast is top notch. John Cameron Mitchell would be so proud…”
- Audience Review

“Performance was emotionally engulfing. Cast chemistry was amazing, which made it that much more entertaining.”
- Audience Review

Hedwig and her punk rock band, The Angry Inch, are traveling back to the wicked little town of St. Paul, MN, due to popular demand! After a successful three-year encore performance in Duluth, MN, Hedwig delighted audiences in St. Paul this November, and now they want more!

Hedwig and The Angry Inch follows the beautifully tragic life story of transgender East German-born Hansel Schmidt. After suffering a botched sexual reassignment surgery, Hedwig tours the world attempting to conquer the demons of her past. This hilarious and powerful rock musical will speak to those who understand what it’s like to desperately be searching for your other half.

Winner of the 2014 Best Show of the Northland and Best Actor and Actress of the Northland by The Reader Magazine, this sold-out show packed the house at The Underground Theatre, located on the shore of Lake Superior. Zenith City Horror is excited to share this well-loved musical with more of the Twin Cities. We look forward to bringing this unique theatrical experience back to the intimate Cabaret at Camp.

Flanagan is dead, but don’t be sad because remembering his life is all about laughs! Back by popular demand, it’s Flanagan’s Wake, the hilarious, interactive Irish funeral. Come celebrate the life of our dear friend, Flanagan, by hoisting a pint and joining in on the tales that unfold.

Join the villagers of the beautiful Grapplin, County Sligo, Ireland, as they tell tales, sing songs and toast the memory of one of their own. Pay your respects to glowering Mother Flanagan and to the poor grieving fiancée, Fiona Finn. Listen to a eulogy written by County Sligo’s best-known writer, Mickey Finn, and tip a pint with Brian Ballybunion, himself a weaver of tales. Share memories of your own experiences and misadventures with dear, old Flanagan, or simply enjoy the stories and songs of the locals as they recall Flan’s life. Cross yourself with the blessings from St. Gregory’s parish priest, Father Damon Fitzgerald, or cross your fingers that local pagan Kathleen Mooney doesn’t cast a spell on you. Mayor Martin O’Doul will preside over the proceedings with an iron hand (and a parched throat) as he leads in grieving as only the Irish can.

Celebrate the day before Presidents Day with Naked Girls Reading!

This month, the beauties with brains of Naked Girls Reading Minneapolis are baring more than just their behinds, using all types of literary genres to discuss all things related to Presidents: history, conspiracies, assassinations, strange facts, successes, failures and the women who inspired, broke or challenged them.

Readers include Stella Rosa, Joy Coy and producer Queenie von Curves.

Naked Girls Reading, called appropriately racy by Entertainment Weekly and the best thing to happen to books since they were put on tape by Carson Daly, was founded in Chicago in March of 2009 by International Showgirl Michelle Lamour and husband Franky Vivid.

After the very first event, it was obvious to all in attendance that something big had just happened - something spiritual. There’s something beautiful, something altogether more intimate, about a woman reading pretty much anything in her, well, altogether. It’s just that simple.

So why are we still talking about it? Because people can’t seem to accept its simplicity. Once you experience it, you’ll stop asking so many questions and just let the concept take you.

Naked Girls. Reading.
or, Girls Reading. Naked.
However you need to explain it to yourself is fine. And while you do, well be over here—reading.
Naked.


Bye Bye Liver - The Twin Cities Drinking Play

Bye Bye Liver, the Twin Cities Drinking Play, is a high octane comedy adventure centered around one of the Twin Cities’ favorite past times—drinking. With outrageous sketch comedies mixing drinks, interactive drinking games and male versus female inebriation, Bye Bye Liver is a play premised on the simple joys and complex consequences that indulging in a drink or two or three can bring.

Under the direction of John Haynes, director of the Creative Institute at Actor’s Theater, the Bye Bye Liver cast features a team of comedy stalwarts. The hour-and-15-minute show premiered in Nashville and was originally created by producer, writer and director Byron Hatfield.

Star Tribune says, “Show has been knocking them back”

City Pages says, “A-list event!”

TC Daily Planet says, “Bye Bye Liver hits the sweet spot”!
