Weekend Picks: Twelfth Night; Bastille Day; Marcie Rendon’s new book

4 days ago 19

If you didn’t get enough American Revolution nostalgia on July 4, kick it with Alliance Française MSP as they celebrate the independence day of the USA’s oldest ally. Read on for more details on the festivities, as well as my take on Classical Actors Ensemble’s “Twelfth Night” and Marcie Rendon’s new collection of poetry, “Anishinaabe Songs for a New Millennium,” which will celebrate its release next Tuesday. To help you plan your weekend, I’ve got the details on a new musical play called “Ashti’s Journey to Jazz,” with music by Thomasina Petrus, an exhibition featuring Syed Hosain, and ritual storytelling and music with Carlisle Evans Peck and friends at the Southern Theater.
