Weekend watch: 'Songs for a New World' and 'Boeing Boeing'Tonight through Sunday
A pair of new productions hit local stages tonight. The Stage at Island Park, 333 4th St. S., Fargo, welcomes back the works of Jason Robert Brown whose musical “13” was staged there in the summer of 2010. This time around Brown’s song cycle, “Songs for a New World,” centers on the decisive moment for a variety of seemingly unconnected characters, who can all relate to the anguish of having to make hard choices. The Music Theatre Fargo-Moorhead show starts at 7:30 tonight through Saturday with 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $20, $15 for senior and $10 for students, with a $5 student rush 15 minutes before the show. (701) 235-6778.
On the other side of the river, Concordia College takes on one of the most popular French plays, and recent Broadway hit revival, “Boeing Boeing.” Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the farce revolves around a slick playboy and his marriage engagements to three flight attendants, each from different countries. The laughs start nightly at 8 in the Comstock Theatre, with a 2 p.m. matinee Sunday. Tickets are $7, $4 for students and seniors and free for Concordia students, staff and faculty. (218) 299-3314.
