‘Stained Glass’

Opening Thursday: Reyn Guyer made his name and coin as an inventor of amusements. The St. Paul native developed Twister and the Nerf ball. Now he’s pursuing another passion: musical theater. Guyer wrote lyrics for “Stained Glass,” a show composed by Jeff Harrington that played New York but that he still wanted to work on. He’s hired Jevetta Steele to star alongside some other gifted singing actors: Julius Collins, Jana Anderson and Larry Bagby. They star in a church-set mystery directed by Richard Thompson. (7:30 p.m. Thu. & Sun., 8 p.m. Fri. & Sat. Ends Oct. 27. $37-$350. Ritz Theater, 345 13th Av. NE., Mpls. 612-436-1129.)

Ramaswamy, a leading exponent of the Indian dance form of Bharatanatyam, has been touring this piece nationally to critical and audience acclaim. Featuring live musical accompaniment.
