MARCH "All in St. Paul" Event Calendar

In like a lion, looking forward to the lamb.  We have had some surprising St. Patty's Day weather - fingers are crossed! St. Paul turns green and celebrates as much as possible this month! Don't wait 'til the 17th for your fun!

Tuesday, March 1

MN Wild vs. Colorado, Xcel Center, 7pm.

The Dutchman and the Owl Answers opens, Penumbra, thru March 27. Two groundbreaking plays, one stage. In one night we present some of the finest work from the man dubbed “the father of the Black Arts Movement” and the woman ostracized as she took up nonlinear forms that challenged tradition. While one playwright reveals the absurdity of structural racism by evoking a nautical ghost story, the other uses absurdism to explore internalized racism. Both bravely traverse the ominous corridors of American history.
