Inti-Illimani expresses the essence of the Latin-American ethno-musical experience. Founded by Jorge Coulon in 1967, for 50 years Inti-Illimani has performed worldwide to hundreds of thousands of fans, collaborated with folk legends, earned awards and honors for their activism and masterful musicianship and produced one of the richest discographies in Latin-American recording history. Indeed, Inti-Illimani's premier album, "Nueva Canción", or "new song," spoke to their role in dreaming a new vision for Chile during the volatile socio-political landscape of South America during the 1960s and '70s. They have endured political exile, embodied creative leadership through decades of transition and evolution and enjoyed an invaluable, truly majestic career. Inti-Illimani's poetry -- a sound that captures memories of persecution, love, loss, revolution, social justice and freedom -- has enchanted the ear of legendary artists with whom they have shared stages, including Peter Gabriel, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Mercedes Sosa, Holly Near, Patricio Manns, Youssou'n'Dour, John Williams, Joan Baez and Paco Peña. Don't miss Inti Illimani when they take the stage at The Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis with guest artists Los Llaneros. [less-]

If Monty Python were tasked with rewriting an Agatha Christie murder mystery, the results wouldn't be half as funny as "The Murder Room", where "murder most foul" becomes "mayhem most farcical." Mavis Templeton Hollister returns to her small estate in northern England only to find her husband, Edgar, waiting to greet her ... which is slightly distressing, considering she murdered him earlier. She quickly "finishes the job" but Edgar's disappearance sets off a remarkable zany chain of events. Plodding police inspectors, mysterious hidden compartments, dim-witted relatives and noisy servants all make "The Murder Room" an utterly charming place to be. Buffalo Community Theater brings this "killer" comedy from prolific playwright Jack Sharkey to the Discovery Auditorium stage. [less-]

With more than 1,600 cans and over 450 bottle of beer consumed onstage, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has racked up impressive numbers. Ripping a page out of the ingeniously sloppy series "Drunk History", the theater troupe behind Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare inserts an entirely inebriated cast member into an entirely serious production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Laugh-out-loud funny and completely interactive, the series has been selling out shows in the UK since 2010 and finally makes its way stateside. With audiences dictating when the drunk actor must drink more, no two performances are ever the same. And lest you think it disrespectful, it's all based on the good 'ol days of the raucous, interactive and vibrant Elizabethan theater scene. The most fun, bawdy Shakespeare play you'll ever see happens at Camp Bar in St. Paul. [less-]
