Minnesota, the land of lakes, is also the land of many quality theaters. Here are a few productions from 2013 that stand out for their own unique merits.
The story may be one you’re familiar with but there’s plenty to draw you in to the Guthrie’s production of Pride and Prejudice. For starters, they’re bringing in a big name with local ties — “Mad Men’s” Vincent Kartheiser.
To find their Mr. Darcy, the Guthrie Theater in Minnesota has turned to a Mad Man. Vincent Kartheiser, who plays the malcontent Pete Campbell on AMC’s “Mad Men,” will star this summer in a new Guthrie production of “Pride and Prejudice” as the brooding hero of Jane Austen’s most famous novel.
Even though he lives in Los Angeles, Vincent Kartheiser says he still wants a place close to home. Just not too close.
Well, it’s that time of year again — time to look back on the year that was and reflect on what we’ve learned, the new places we’ve enjoyed and the events that made up 2011.
You might not believe it watching the Minneapolis-born actor, while he’s playing his smarmy character Pete Campbell on the hit show, “Mad Men,” but Vincent Kartheiser is chock-full of “Minnesota Nice.”
