Professor C.C. Heintzeman was a visionary educator who used music to change the lives of Minneapolis factory-working boys in the early 1900s. In playwright Dominic Orlando's world-premiere musical, romance, patriotism and the approaching thrum of World War I weave together in a celebration of Heintzeman's life and the rough-and-tumble young men who formed the Working Boys Band under his tutelage. Put on by History Theatre, a company devoted to exploring the rich history of Minnesota, Working Boys Band is a tribute to the power of music, compassion and discipline. Learn More

St. Paul’s original “IT” couple — F. Scott Fitzgerald and his muse Zelda — were glittering emblems of the Jazz Age, living a life filled with parties, fashion, and tabloid headlines. This new jazz musical, which premiered Off-Broadway, tells the tale of these storied lovers, capturing both the joy of their romance and their struggles for artistic identity and fame. From the world of literature to the glamor of Hollywood, the lives of Zelda and Scott reflected the era during which they lived: highs and lows, boom and bust, a thrilling rise and a devastating crash.
