Saint Paul, MN (October 21, 2006) – On the eve of his 50th birthday, architect Martin Gray has reached a new pinnacle in his life. He’s won the Pritzker Prize. He’s landed a mega-bucks development contract. He’s found new love. So what’s wrong with this picture? Well, the problem with reaching the top is that there’s usually only one direction to go. nimbus proudly presents the regional premiere of 3-time Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Edward Albee’s The Goat or, Who Is Sylvia?. Winner of the 2002 Tony, New York Critics Circle, Outer Critics Circle and the Drama Desk awards for best play, The Goat is a pitch black comedy that challenges us to question the nature and meaning of love, revisit our definitions of normality and confront the arbitrary nature of the societal standards for human behavior. The Goat or, Who Is Sylvia? will be presented November 3rd – 19th at the Minneapolis Theater Garage, 711 West Franklin Avenue, in Minneapolis. Friday, November 3rd – 8:00 pm Saturday, November 4th – 8:00 pm Sunday, November 5th – 3:00 pm Thursday, November 9th – 8:00 pm Friday, November 10th – 8:00 pm Saturday, November 11th – 8:00 pm Sunday, November 12th – 3:00 pm Monday, November 13th – 8:00 pm Thursday, November 16th – 8:00 pm Friday, November 17th – 8:00 pm Saturday, November 18th – 8:00 pm Sunday, November 19th – 3:00 pm Tickets are $10 on Thursdays and Sundays, $14 on Fridays and Saturdays, and $16 for the opening night performance and gala.

Cast and crew interviews and preview arrangements can be made by contacting Josh Cragun at (612) 237-9810 or via e-mail at josh@nimbustheatre.com. Above the maddening din of pat answers, advertising chatter, and pop culture jingles, nimbus asks our audiences, collaborators, and conspirators to question ideas, emotions, and easy answers. We present work that entertains, provokes, challenges, and sometimes just plain baffles.
