Lots of A&E stuff went down last night. Here is what you hit or missed:

The Duluth Playhouse opened its production of “Godspell.” Reviewer Lawrance Bernabo said of it:

 Director Lee Gundersheimer enlisted his energized cast in a creative process that might fall short of the proverbial kitchen sink but manages to include everything from “The Godfather” to Charlie Chaplin, all in the service of bringing the parables of Jesus to life for a contemporary audience.


Meanwhile, over at Fitger’s Spirit of the North Theater, James DeVita took a page from Sir Ian McKellen and performed “In Acting Shakespeare,” a one-man show. (Although his route to Shakespeare includes more fish).

Here’s what Trampled was up to on Night 2 of a three-night stand at First Avenue.

MPR conveniently wrapped up all the reviews of “Nice Fish,” co-written by Duluth-based poet Louis Jenkins and Tony Award-winning actor Mark Rylance. It’s now playing at the Guthrie Theater.
