Humorist and bestselling author David Sedaris will return to the Twin Cities in the fall. The show by Sedaris, who appears annually in Minnesota, is the biggest one in a slate of productions announced by Hennepin Theatre Trust, which books four theaters in downtown Minneapolis.
Sedaris will play the State Theatre Nov. 1.
The other announced shows, all locally produced, take place in the New Century Theatre. “The Realish Housewives of Edina: A Parody” was written by Second City writers Kate James and Tim Sniffen. It promises a comedic exploration of brawls, booze and Botox (Sept. 24–Nov. 15).
The sendup of Edina housewives is followed by “The How and the Why,” by Sarah Treem, a TV writer (“House of Cards,” “In Treatment”) and show creator (“The Affair”). The drama is centered on two female biologists, one at the end of her career and the other at the beginning. The work of the young scientist threatens to overturn the contributions of her elder. Theatre Unbound co-produces the show (March 10-20, 2016).
Johnathan Tolins' one-man comedy, “Buyer & Cellar,” has been a crowd pleaser in New York and London. It centers on a fame-craving Los Angeles actor who works in Barbara Streisand’s basement. One day, the megastar herself joins him in the basement and they hit it off (March 31–April 24, 2016).
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Fri. 612-455-9501 or online.
