"Chef in the Garden is back for September's Wednesday night event series. Glensheen is known for the incredibly, impressive mansion.

It gets better, all of the produce is donated to a local food shelf, Second Harvest Food Bank. Chef in the Garden takes advantage of this tasty gift right in our back yard. A local Chef will showcase different recipes each week using vegetables from the Glensheen's Vegetable Garden. They will literally pull carrots from the ground and pluck corn from its stalk to cook samples right in front of you. A Glensheen Grounds crew member will be present to answer questions specifically about Glensheen's Gardens. The event is free and open to the public. Small samples will be served. Held at 3300 London Road in Duluth.

Zeitgeist Introduces Independent Production Debut With ‘The Realistic Joneses’

Dates: September 6 - September 22
Time: 7:30 pm/Except on Sundays matinee at 2:00 pm
320-455-2705 • Visit Website

Zeitgeist is proud to introduce their first independent production ‘The Realistic Joneses.’ Making its regional debut. ‘The Realistic Joneses’ by Will Eno is a comedy about two couples, both with the last name Jones, wrestling with major mid-life issues, including degenerative disease. Touching and hilarious, this quirky play strikes a balance between the tragedy and the comedy of life in the 21st century. The play quietly presents two people in the early stages of HLS " Harriman Leavey Syndrome" an invented degenerative nerve disease that is a combination of ALS and Multiple Sclerosis. Bob Jones, we learn right away, is in the early stages of an experimental treatment, while John Jones has been diagnosed but is not being treated. Their spouses, Jennifer and Pony, struggle with their roles as caregivers. ‘The Realistic Joneses’ is presented in a series of twelve realistic, mostly comic scenes. The four characters are all in the middle of their lives and searching for the meaning of existence while facing the pending loss of their life or their life partner. This play addresses a heavy topic and presents it with philosophical musings and character-driven humor. It celebrates the simple joy of life while suggesting that we should enjoy the amazing life that comes our way, however long it lasts. Tickets are $20 General Admission /$17 Seniors and Students. Held at 222 East Superior Street in Duluth.

Time: Thursday-Saturday @ 7:30pm | Sunday @ 2pm
(218) 733-7555 • Visit Website

Full of heart and filled with lovable misfits, this musical is based on the cult hit film of the same name. While spying on them at a Girls’ Night Out, a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo sees how much their wives enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically, but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness, and prejudices, the men come to discover that they’re stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to “let it go.” Tickets range from $35.00 - $50.00. Performed at the NorShor Theatre, 211 East Superior Street.
