Join a special evening with author Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche discussing his latest book, "In Love with the World: A Monks Journey Through the Bardos of Living and Dying" by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche and Helen Tworkov. The book is a rare and intimate account of a world-renowned Buddhist monk's near-death experience and the life-changing wisdom he gained from it. At 36 years old, Rinpoche was a rising star within his generation of Tibetan masters when, one night, he slipped out of his monastery in India to embark on a wandering retreat. He wanted to throw off his titles and shed his public identity to explore the deepest aspects of his being. Yet he immediately discovered that he was not prepared for the harsh realities outside the monastery. Rinpoche's adventurous journey took a startling turn when he became deathly ill from food poisoning. His lifelong meditation practice had prepared him to face death, and he now had the opportunity to test the strength of his training. In this powerful and unusually candid memoir of learning to face fear, the Buddhist master reveals the invaluable lessons he learned from his near-death experience and guides readers through the meditation practices that sustained him. "In Love with the World" illuminates how we can all train our minds and transform our fears and the small deaths we face each day into joyful living. Though Rinpoche's story has the feel of a spiritual classic, it is an urgent and timely message for readers in today's challenging world. [less-]

This award-winning drama by Wendy Kesselman explores the true story of two sisters who murdered their employer and her daughter in 1930s France. What drove these two young women, who served as maids in the household, to such a desperate act? Class conflict, family dysfunction, loneliness, and love all play a role in this complex and devastating tale. The story of Christine and Léa Papin has spawned more than two dozen books, plays, and movies. What drew Theatre Pro Rata to Kesselman’s script is the way it gives the sisters humanity. The production's designers are playing with a very haute couture aesthetic: “We’re digging in to the nightmare of it, which is very tantalizing,” says director Carin Bratlie Wethern. “We want to create something horrifically beautiful on stage.” Playing at The Crane Theater in Northeast Minneapolis; easy to get to from I-35W and free parking in the adjacent lot.

Adapted from Rick Riordan's bestselling YA book, this "electrifying" ("Newsday") pop-rock musical finds Percy Jackson in hot water at school -- again. But he's got bigger fish to fry.

Nominated for three Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, "The Lightning Thief" comes to the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in Saint Paul in a production deemed "worthy of the gods" by "TimeOut New York."
