nimbus presents the regional premier of Charles Mee’s <cite>The Mail Order Bride</cite>

October 12, 2007

In this adaptation of Moliere’s The Imaginary Invalid, aging control-obsessed Argan orders a young Asian bride much to the outrage and indignation of his family and friends. But when a handsome young dress-maker arrives on the scene, the bride must choose between loyalty and love, and Argan is forced to learn that love is the opposite of control. nimbus is proud to present the regional premiere of Charles Mee’s The Mail Order Bride, directed by co-Artistic director, Josh Cragun. True to Mee’s “collage theater” stylings, this farce is a 2 ½ ring circus of Tai Chi exercises, nunchuck demonstrations, urban dance numbers and even a singing castrato. Along the way, both sincere and satiric observations are made about marriage, race, love and Gnarls Barkley. The Mail Order Bride will be presented November 2nd – 18th at the Minneapolis Theater Garage, 711 West Franklin Avenue, in Minneapolis. Friday, November 2nd – 8:00 pm Saturday, November 3rd – 8:00 pm Sunday, November 4th – 3:00 pm Thursday, November 8th – 8:00 pm Friday, November 9th – 8:00 pm Saturday, November 10th – 8:00 pm Sunday, November 11th – 3:00 pm Monday, November 12th – 8:00 pm Thursday, November 15th– 8:00 pm Friday, November 16th – 8:00 pm Saturday, November 17th – 8:00 pm Sunday, November 18tth – 3:00 pm Tickets are $10 on Thursdays and Sundays, $15 on Fridays and Saturdays, and $18 for the opening night performance and gala.
