Plan for a fun and lively evening full of substance. This is not your typical stand up show – it is a town hall-like event centered around social activism. No topic is off limits. The event is meant to be inclusive for people of all different political backgrounds. The goal is to have honest, respectful, and productive conversations and for participants to openly share opinions about the issues and obstacles we face as a country. Expect to hear a current events conversation that could include Gun Violence, Immigration, EPA/Energy Policy, LGBTQ Rights, Infrastructure with Q&A to follow.
Local television personality, Jana Shortal, will host this conversation.
With Chelsea, you know there will be plenty of comedy sprinkled in! These are not debates. This is a time to bring people together, challenge your own thinking, and have fun doing it.
Celebrate the Grand Marshal and Community Champions of Pride!
The event also serves as Opening Night of the Pride Art Show, celebrating the talent of our Community.
Huge Silent Auction including a MN Twins Suite, Wine Tasting for 20, and much, much, more.
Appetizers and cash bar. Stay tuned for more details as they become available!
Minnesota Opera Presents Fellow Travelers
June 16, 19, 21, and 23 at 7:30 PM, June 17 at 2:00PM
At The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts, Goodale Theater
528 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55403
An opera by Gregory Spears
Libretto by Greg Pierce
Based on the 2007 novel “Fellow Travelers” by Thomas Mallon
Developed and Co-Commissioned by G. Sterling Zinsmeyer and Cincinnati Opera
This story of a forbidden love affair between two men in 1950s McCarthy-era Washington D.C., Fellow Travelers is a searing opera infused with political drama, unexpected humor, and sincere heartbreak. A chance encounter between recent college graduate Timothy Laughlin and handsome State Department official Hawkins Fuller results in Tim’s first job—and his first love affair with a man. As McCarthy mounts a desperate bid for power and internal investigations focus on removing “sexual subversives” in the government, Tim and Fuller find it increasingly dangerous to navigate their double lives.
Sung in English with English captions projected above the stage.
