(with apologies to MPR's Art Hounds)...

These are things I am so excited about in the arts community right now...

Open Eye Figure Theatre opens Elijah's Wake this Friday. It's a beautiful "visual poem," with a haunting score by Anthony Gatto. We'll be there for opening night on Friday, come join us! (if you are feeling flush, their gala fundraiser is November 6...)

The House Can't Stand, by former Jeune Lune artistic directors Dominique Serrand and Steve Epp plays this weekend only at the Southern Theatre. I can hardly wait to see what these guys are doing with this.

The next Nautilus ROUGH CUTS is November 9 and 10. We've been selling out lately, so don't miss this!

The folks behind the St. Paul Art Crawl are beginning "First Friday" events in lowertown, starting November 6, from 6-9. Be in the know and catch this event while it's still young!

Speaking of getting in on a hip thing while it's new, my good friend Kelly is opening her dream, Play by Play Books in November. Not only does she have every theatre-related book you could want, but she stocks great artsy gifts, and her store space on Selby between Snelling and Fairview is as cozy as it gets. Christmas shopping, anyone?

Less new is Minnesota Playlist, but they are doing a re-launch this month. If you already love them, it's only going to get better. If you don't already go to the site, you should — it's like The Uptake, but for the arts!
