The tiny Michigan town of Radio Falls has been trapped in perpetual winter for a generation. Snow and ice coat every tree branch and telephone wire, and the unceasing blizzard surrounding the town means there's no way in or out. The last moment of heated passion brought the town its only remaining youth -- a young girl named Rose -- and it's up to her to save Radio Falls from the vicious curse of the Rime Witch. An optimistic and imaginative tale, Rose and the Rime returns to the stage this season with an enhanced production that features aerial spectacle and magic. Learn More

A huge fan of this genre of music (alt-country, roots, americana, what-have-you), I was excited to see my first House show. The band did not disappoint, amazing musicians all. And Corrie Feuerstein as the tumbleweed was double-plus fantastisch. The story? Well, not so much. It seemed like, with the number of tunes included, that the story was just time filler in between songs. There were some funny bits throughout the "book" portion, Anderson Lawfer's host had me laughing out loud, but I found myself wanting them to hurry up and get to the next song already. I would love to see a concert with this cast as the band and on this beautifully realized set. And this is where my experience seems to jibe with nearly all the House reviews I've read -- I enjoyed myself immensely, but found the story somewhat lacking.
Sadly reflective and yet hilariously surreal, the show mixes rock biography, live music and stunning visual effects to tell a tripped out tale of the demise of America's last living cowboy.
