Pride and prejudice and physical comedy
Highly regarded actor Christina Baldwin made her directorial debut two years ago with a witty, sold-out production of “Miss Bennet,” based on characters from Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.” Baldwin has found new colors, and a lot more laughs, in a frothy revival at the Jungle. Christian Bardin is more assured and playful as the persnickety title character. She has great chemistry with newcomer Reese Britts, who plays Arthur de Bourgh, the young student who has inherited an estate and whose interests match hers. The ensemble plays it both straight and funny.
7:30 p.m. Tue.-Sat., 2 & 7:30 p.m. today and next Sun. Ends Dec. 29. Jungle Theater, 2951 Lyndale Av. S., Mpls. $40-$55, 612-822-7063 or jungletheater.com.
After dropping out of the 2018 Soundset lineup following sexual misconduct allegations against co-founder Ameer Vann — who has been kicked out — Brockhampton is returning to the Armory. The Texas-reared, Los Angeles-based sextet of low-adrenaline, AutoTune-loving rappers and singers landed a modest radio hit with “No Halo” but has a viral following with its new album “Ginger,” an unlikely cross between Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Khalid and a boy band.
8 p.m. Tue. The Armory, Mpls. $37-$47, all ages, ticketmaster.com.
In 2016 cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason became the first black artist to win the prestigious BBC Young Musician of the Year award. Then he broke the classical internet by performing at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Kanneh-Mason makes his Schubert Club debut with his pianist sister Isata. Rachmaninoff’s fulsomely romantic Cello Sonata is the main item, along with the lesser-known Sonata by Samuel Barber.
7:30 p.m. Thu., 10:30 a.m. Fri. Ordway Concert Hall, St. Paul. $28-$75, 651-292-3268 or schubert.org.
Seattle-based indie musician Mike Hadreas, better known as Perfume Genius, takes a turn as a dancer in a collaboration with Seattle choreographer Kate Wallich and her company, the YC. “The Sun Still Burns Here” is a meditation on decay with a solid serving of eroticism. Plan for a phantasmagorical all-night party with live music and movement. It’s the last show the boundary-pushing Liquid Music series will present as part of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.
8 p.m. Thu.-Sat. Walker Art Center, Mpls. $25, 612-375-7600 or walkerart.org.
You thought Halloween was over? Not quite, because apparently holiday haunts are a thing. And we aren’t talking about those January credit card bills. The Haunted Basement returns for the holidays with more mischief than mirth, inviting brave guests for some “yuletide horror.” Throughout the artistic and thought-provoking attraction, there probably won’t be singing elves, and if Santa invites you to visit, you might want to decline.
6:30-10:30 p.m. Fri.-Sat. Ends Dec. 14. Rosedale Center, Roseville. $20, hauntedbasement.org.
