Khephra: A Hip Hop Holiday Story


If you’re looking to take in a holiday show, but you’re hungry for something contemporary, original, and energetic, the run for Shá Cage and TRU RUTS‘s Khephra: A Hip Hop Holiday Story kicks off tonight with a preview tonight at Open Eye. The all ages-appropriate Khephra follows a young girl’s journey from Africa to America with Cage, Alissa Paris, and Destiny Anderson performing different characters throughout the production that includes drama, movement, poetry, and puppets. And if you’re wondering if this is just for kids, some of the best overall shows we’ve seen recently have been at Open Eye, so we’ve got a lot of excitement for this one, too. November 30-December 9, Various showtimes. $15.Margeaux Devereaux

Even if you can’t make American Civic Forum‘s production of Colluded! tonight, do yourself a favor and read former Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page’s testimony to the House Intelligence Committee. It’s one of the most hilarious things (unintentionally) things of the past year, which is, yes, saying a lot, but it’s true. It’s also a great basis for a stage production—and ACF will also get into what Page’s mental and linguistic gymnastics means in terms of Russian influence into the White House, too. 7:30 PM. $10 advance, $15 door.Hitara

Lutsen 99er Kick-Off Party

Lutsen 99er

We’re not long-distance mountain bike riders, but after watching the trailer for next year’s Lutsen 99er, maybe we could be. Trail riding through the very picturesque North Shore bike trails with your buds and then heartily celebrating? Looks really fun. We’re at least sold enough to pop into Fulton’s tap room tonight to hear more about the event—and maybe even register after a few Sweet Childs. 5 PM. Free.Hank Stacks
