St Paul

The poster is brilliant and the production was pretty darn good. An all-Asian A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC by Theatre Mu with a six piece chamber orchestra was impeccably sung and thoroughly entertaining.
The Park Square Theatre in St. Paul is one of the few surviving theatres in what was once a thriving entertainment district.
There was an interesting display in the foyer documenting St. Paul's glittering theatrical past.
Perhaps Baby June and Louise played here!

Edwin Booth's acting company visiting Minnehaha Falls
A projection in the foyer of an earlier, more ornate architectural feature.
And a sad indication of modern manners
A mural outside on the Square shows the famous diner on the left.
And the Palace Theatre (which appeared to be dark) across from the Park Square.
We also got a gander at the Beer Bus as it cycled past. All those drinkers at the mobile bar are peddling their way around town as they get blotto. Bizarre.
