Even though ex-pat George McConnell now makes his work in other markets, it’s always a treat when he returns to Twincy and stages a show with his frequent collaborator Samantha Johns. Many of MPLS + SPTL’s performers agree, and on Saturday at the underground Fresh Oysters Performance Research space you can catch a who’s who of the performance community—McKinght winners, Choreographer’s Evening stand-outs, and more—doing fun, bouyant, creative, quickly curated pieces to 13 Love Songs selected by the duo. Saturday, 9-11 PM. $13 door.Camila Rico
