SATURDAY PICK | Live Action Set’s “7-Shot Symphony,” out on the range


“Is there something in the water down in Plainview? Seemingly against all odds, the farm town two hours southeast of the Twin Cities has hosted some of the area’s very best original theater productions over the past two years.” That’s how I began my rave review of Jon Ferguson’s 2011 show Pinocchio, staged at the Jon Hassler Theater. Currently playing at the theater is a sure bet: Live Action Set’s Ivey-winning production The 7-Shot Symphony. It’s an epic western told in the company’s signature physical-theater style, and it would make for a fine day trip in this temperate late-spring weather. If you don’t have your own wheels, or if you just want to make friends and save on gas, the company is facilitating carpools via its website.
