This week on MinneCulture, Andy Driscoll takes an in-depth look at Penumbra Theatre—celebrating its 34th anniversary as the only Twin Cities theatre producing plays by, of and for the African-American community.
Tonight we blasted off into space on a summer “Lunar Lunatics” special…commemorating the first moon landing 7/20/1969. This part of the show was planned. What wasn’t planned until days before was that we would also be doing a tribute to the late Lincoln “Sugar” Minott. Sadly, Sugar passed away at the young age of 54 on July 10th. This dubwise trip to the moon, and the far reaches of space is dedicated to the memory of the great Sugar Minott.
