This 1974 classic which called a choreopoem, was conceived just two years before Penumbra Theatre was born. From its humble creation in 1974 to critical acclaim on Broadway, Ntozake Shange's Obie Award-winning choreopoem has excited, inspired and transformed audiences across the country. The literary luminary's fearless prose vividly paints intimate portraits of the pain and jubilation that women of color experience from girlhood throughout life. Shange was groundbreaking in her efforts to shatter the silence that protected abusers of women. "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf" is a brave reckoning, a celebration, a healing ceremony and, perhaps most profoundly, an example of the awesome power a chorus of women's voices can have. Watch dance, music and poetic monologues combine at St. Paul's Penumbra Theatre. [less-]

It's 1964, and in Erie, Pennsylvania, "Beatle-mania" is taking over just like in the rest of America. Every small-town band is hoping to jump on that bandwagon and get their own chance at greatness. When Guy Patterson, a bored appliance store clerk, fills in as drummer for a garage band at the local college talent show, a sensation is born. Their snappy single, "That Thing You Do," catches on and propels them up the charts, and The Wonders go from obscurity to teen sensations virtually overnight! But as tensions grow, can Guy keep the band together? This may sound familiar to you -- that's because this play is based on the 1996 hit film "That Thing You Do", featuring live, on-stage performances of songs from the original film, including "All My Only Dreams," "Dance with Me Tonight," "Mr. Downtown," "When You Hold My Hand You Hold My Heart," "My World Is Over," and of course, the title song "That Thing You Do."
