This week in music: Bob Dylan headlines busy music week in Minnesota

Bring Me The News, Minnesota - Mon, 07/08/2013 - 05:29

It’s Dylan week in Minnesota as music icon Bob Dylan returns to his home state for two shows while his son, Jakob Dylan, will be taking part in another.

Bob Dylan is headlining two shows on the AmericanaramA Festival of Music tour, which first plays Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth on Tuesday and Midway Stadium in St. Paul Wednesday.

On tour with Dylan are Wilco, Richard Thompson and My Morning Jacket, the Midway show is sold out, but tickets are still available for the Duluth concert at $68 each.

Dylan — who kicked off the tour June 26 with two Florida dates — scored high marks with Orlando Sentinel music critic Jim Abbott, who said the legendary musician’s 90-minute set in Tampa June 27 “included unpredictable musical treats for loyalists.”

Among them was “She Belongs to Me,” which Abbott says was “reinvented by melding harmonica and pedal steel guitar atop a martial tempo”; and “Ballad of Thin Man,” which during an encore was played as a “subdued ballad that allowed the caustic lyrics to be observed from a different angle.”

The Tennessean music critic Peter Cooper also lauded Dylan’s willingness to mix it up during the Americanarama tour stop in Nashville June 30.

“Want to hear a maverick reinvent the songs that reinvented rock ‘n’ roll? Go see Dylan,” Cooper wrote.

While Bob Dylan will be playing in Duluth on Tuesday, Jakob Dylan will be taking stage with The Wallflowers in Maplewood. The band — on the road with Counting Crows –  stops Tuesday night gig at the Myth Live Event Center.

Other acts coming to Minnesota this week include Mary Chapin Carpenter and Marc Cohn, who play the Music in the Zoo series at the Minnesota Zoo in Apple Valley Wednesday and Thursday; while Bruno Mars brings his Moonshine Jungle World Tour to Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul Sunday.

Meanwhile, Alice Cooper rolls into Minneapolis for two shows on his Raise the Dead tour at the State Theatre Sunday and Monday.

This week in theater: 'Pride and Prejudice' continues at Guthrie

Bring Me The News, Minnesota - Mon, 07/08/2013 - 05:28

The Guthrie’s staging of the Jane Austen classic “Pride and Prejudice” continues with preview performances Tuesday through Thursday before its official premiere Friday in Minneapolis.

The production marks the homecoming of Apple Valley native Vincent Kartheiser, who returns home to the Guthrie stage nearly 27 years after his debut at the famed theater as Tiny Tim in “A Christmas Carol.” Kartheiser also played small roles in the Guthrie’s 1990 productions of “Henry V” and “Henry IV,” and also is an alum of the Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis.

In an interview Sunday with the Star Tribune, the “Mad Men” star suggests he’ll bring a bit of mischief to his starring role of Mr. Darcy.

“You can’t do justice to Jane Austen without bringing a lot of humor,” Kartheiser tells the paper.

Playing Elizabeth Bennet in “Pride and Prejudice” is Ashley Rose Montondo, a 2011 graduate of the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater BFA Actor Training Program. The role marks her first major role on the world stage.

The show runs through Aug. 31. Local reviews of “Pride and Prejudice” are forthcoming.

Also continuing its run this week is the Children’s Theater Company production of “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie,” a stage adaptation of Laura Joffe Numeroff’s best-selling children’s book.

Pioneer Press contributing critic Renee Valois writes, “Director Peter C. Brosius keeps the pace mostly manic, as befits a show aimed at very young children … There’s no time for anyone to get bored.”

“If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” plays through July 21.

Also continuing this week is the Guthrie Theater’s latest production, “Clybourne Park”  at the venue’s McGuire Proscenium stage in Minneapolis.

“Clybourne Park” — which in 2012 earned playwright Bruce Norris a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play — is a satiric comedy that deals with race and class in response to Lorraine Hansberry’s “A Raisin in the Sun.”

Chris Hewitt of the Pioneer Press likens “Clybourne Park” to an orchestra performance, saying it it’s “a work of art where the ‘conductor,’ director Lisa Peterson, and the players are so united in their efforts that we hardly notice the dozens of talents who contributed to the production.”

The play runs through Aug. 4.
