Spotlight



Theatre B productions have been remarkable in the sustained high quality of their work: the choice of plays, the abilities of the actors, the stage craft. The group makes a wonderful contribution to the Fargo-Moorhead area, and I look forward to its future.

33 Variations

February 6 - February 28 | Sunday Matinee February 15
ASL Interpreted Performance February 21

February brings an incredible collaboration with the Fargo/Moorhead Symphony to present Moisés Kaufman’s “33 Variations”, featuring Concordia Music Department Chair John Roberts on piano. This imaginative play follows a modern day musicologist diagnosed with ALS as she races to finish her research on Beethoven. Across time, the ailing and deaf composer becomes obsessed with a simple waltz that spawns one of his greatest works, the Diabelli Variations. Plagued by illness, but gifted with passion, their parallel journeys entwine as they learn to embrace the gift of time and find peace in letting go.

Theatre B is proud to welcome Mary Jo Pehl and Sandra Thomas for a hilarious double bill. 

Mary Jo PehlSandra Thomas

Writer and comedian Mary Jo Pehl will kick off the show with comedy and reading excerpts from her book, "Employee of The Month And Other Big Deals."  Mary Jo has toured the country with Cinematic Titanic, the live version of the Emmy nominated TV series Mystery Science Theater 3000, for which she was a writer and actor. Mary Jo has also appeared on numerous comedy specials, NPR, and other venues, and her writing has appeared in Minnesota Monthly, the Star Tribune, Salon.com and other publications. 

Rounding out the show is Sandra Thomas, a Twin Cities actor and writer who has appeared on stage and in several feature films. She will be performing her hilarious Fringe Festival hit "Macaroni on A Hot Dog." Everyone has a wedding disaster story-this family has 50! Inspired by true events,  Sandra presents a collection of characters from an especially cringe-worthy wedding. The St. Paul Pioneer Press called the show a 'Must See' of the 2014 Minnesota Fringe Festival, and the show was a nightly sell-out and ranked in the top ten in attendance.

"It's kind of like a mirror of what we have in our own lives but might be afraid to talk about. And then you see it there, on stage, in front of you. It really can change your life."

There have been a lot of entertaining, provocative, and powerful productions that Theatre B has produced or been a part of. We invited a few fans to talk about one that impacted them. You can view the video below or on YouTube.
