Weekend watch: 'Bugsy Malone Sr.' at The Stage at Island Park
Silver Follies is taking its own spin on gangster musicals with “Bugsy Malone Sr.” The stage version is based on the 1976 Scott Baio and Jodie Foster film “Bugsy Malone,” in which kids played all the roles.
This time it’s Malcolm Thompson in the lead as the now-senior title character, still looking to put the moves on aspiring singer Blousey Brown (Linda Hinrichs). The play transports The Stage at Island Park, 333 4th St. S., Fargo, to 1920s New York, where a gang war is about to be settled with Silly String shootouts. The songs and dancing start at 7:30 tonight through Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets range from $6 - $16. (701) 235-1901.
