“Cheeky scamps”

Check out page 24 of the March issue of Minnesota Monthly to read more about the “cheeky scamps” at Arlo, and get a breakdown of what we spent on Christmas Carol.

Thanks all!

Well, that wraps up our second production in three months–four months since we officially started work on Arlo. Christmas Carol was an unqualified success, and we are already at work on the script for our next show: MacBeth: the Video Game Remix.

So as I sit at The Local, some thoughts on Arlo at the […]

AV Club’s holiday guide

We rated a nod in the AV Club’s roundup of Twin Cities holiday shows:

If you were more interested in MTV than The Golden Girls in the ’80s, or your current TV-watching habits don’t include the Lifetime network, do yourself a favor and get to know Blanche, Dorothy, Rose, and Sophia. Those old broads were […]

Golden Girls Gone Wild

Jay Gabler gives us some kind words in his TC Daily Planet Review:

Given the material and its tone, this seems almost absurd to write, but from its debut production—an übergay version of The Importance of Being Earnest—to this sophomore show, Theatre Arlo is actually demonstrating real artistic growth. I recommended the first show to […]

The snarky, mixed-up holiday fare your funny bones crave

Metromix’s Annie DeSouza gives us a shout-out:

I’m putting a hold on my Pre-Thanksgiving Christmas Ban for 2009. I’m typically 100% against Christmas things before Thanksgiving, but this month’s calendar seemed to be full of them. Besides, even though this event started last week, it’s occuring weekly on Sundays until December 20, 2009 so it’s […]

A Christmas Carol: The Golden Girls Remix, Theatre Arlo The troupe that debuted this fall with a gay(er) production of The Importance of Being Earnest “remixes” the Dickens classic, inserting Blanche, Dorothy, Rose, and Sophia. And they’re doing their homework: Arlo’s […]
