Celebrity impersonator Michael L. Walters is "sooo" good when he dons the "wisteria" coif and rhinestone glasses of Dame Edna, one of Australia's -- and the world's -- biggest stars, he received the blessing of Barry Humphries, Dame Edna's original creator, and appeared with Mr. Humphries at his special 2010 birthday event. Modestly described as "probably the most gifted and talented woman in the world today," Dame Edna has circled the globe dispensing sage advice and take-no-prisoners comedy to her beloved "possums." Now, Walters -- who's also traveled the world with his impeccable impersonation -- brings his portrayal of Dame Edna back to the Cabaret at Camp Bar for this loving musical parody tribute to the diva from down under.

This award-winning drama by Wendy Kesselman explores the true story of two sisters who murdered their employer and her daughter in 1930s France. What drove these two young women, who served as maids in the household, to such a desperate act? Class conflict, family dysfunction, loneliness, and love all play a role in this complex and devastating tale. The story of Christine and Léa Papin has spawned more than two dozen books, plays, and movies. What drew Theatre Pro Rata to Kesselman’s script is the way it gives the sisters humanity. The production's designers are playing with a very haute couture aesthetic: “We’re digging in to the nightmare of it, which is very tantalizing,” says director Carin Bratlie Wethern. “We want to create something horrifically beautiful on stage.” Playing at The Crane Theater in Northeast Minneapolis; easy to get to from I-35W and free parking in the adjacent lot.
