Dracula -- the world's favorite and most famous vampire -- may best be known for his bloodcurdling (and slurping) feats of shape-shifting, mesmerization and allurement ... but sometimes he's just gotta sing! An upbeat and humorous musical spoof of Bram Stoker's immortal creation, Dracula: The Musical follows its young heroine, Sarah, as she journeys to 505 Transylvania Avenue -- prompting a fun, funny and family-friendly adventure that features classic horror film favorites like Igor and the Bride of Frankenstein. Celebrate the Halloween season with songs and howls of laughter courtesy of the Youth Performance Company. Learn More
Sadly there is not a moderately priced cafe/wine bar within 2 blocks. The nearby Radisson (maybe it's a Towne Court) has a very mediocre restaurant. On the corner is a LOUD place 'Waters....something' but I'm concerned that restauranteurs ignore needs of 'mature' people. I sincerely hope when St Paul redoes the former Macy's block, it includes a restaurant/bar similar - if not the same- as the old Rosewood Rm.Courting Harry dining • Apr 11 2014 star this tip starred
This family has been regulars at the History Theater for years. We have always parked in the ramp by the Children's Museum, just a block away. Now we are looking forward to taking the light rail from the burbs and avoiding parking all together. When the Central Corder opens in June, the train will stop literally at the door of the History Theatre. This tremendous venue will be incredibly accessible from anywhere the light rail goes or can be picked up!The Incredible Season of Ronnie Rabinovitz info • Feb 15 2014 star this tip starred

Written and performed by Aamera Siddiqui
Directed by Meena Natarajan and Suzy Messerole
For Aamera Siddiqui, growing up as an immigrant in the United States was a balancing act between her Indian heritage and her American surroundings. Aamera’s world consisted of one country inside the four walls of her family’s home and another country outside those walls. Curried peas and hot dogs, Catholic school uniforms and colorful saris, Urdu and English all blended and bounced off one another to shape Aamera’s identity.
Told with honesty and humor, American as Curry Pie is one woman’s story about immigration, assimilation, and discovering what it means to be an American.
A free post-show discussion with special guests and the people who bring the stories to History Theatre’s stage, following the weekend matinees on March 19 & 26 and April 2 & 10.
