Legend has it that Sidney Poitier was so moved by the story of The Lilies of the Field that he waived his usual salary -- not knowing he would later win worldwide fame (and an Oscar) for his portrayal of the hard-headed Homer Smith. From the moment it was published as a novel by William E. Barret, The Lilies of the Field has had a special effect on people. Experience it yourself when Open Window Theatre presents this heart-warming stage adaptation. Headed west in search of a new beginning in the mid-1950s, black Southern Baptist itinerant worker Homer Smith encounters a group of Catholic nuns scratching out an existence in the remote Southwest. Mother Maria Marthe, convinced that Homer was sent to them by God to build them a chapel, persuades him to stay (without pay) and take on this seemingly impossible task. The faith of all are tested, proving that friendships and miracles alike come in all forms. Learn More

I was a bit hesitant going to such a large production in such a small space, but it turned out to be irrelevant. The production was wonderful - ingenious use of set and space, and acting was very moving. Really loved the production.
Once again, Theatre Coup d’Etat is rolling up their sleeves and shooting for the heart with Tony Kushner’s award winning saga, Angels in America: Millennium Approaches. Winner of the 1993 Pulitzer for drama, Angels in America is set in the 1980s against a backdrop of conservatism, sexual politics, and the discovery of an epidemic cutting a wide cloth though society. Both a love story and a political drama, centering on a group of inextricably connected people whose relationships are disintegrating as a generation falls prey to a culture of greed. Kushner’s dark, cynical humor captures the fragility of the human condition and his prophetic and sublime words pierce the heart and move you to tears. _Angels in America _ was a turning point in history of classic American Playwright Literature and 20 years later is still considered a profound and moving theatrical event not to be missed.
Director Justin M. Kirkeberg (Candid Theater Co.) will be taking the reigns and heading up a cast of Twin Cities brightest up and coming talent
