I got an e-mail from a dear friend in Minnesota which, among other things, deals with Dario Fo’s execrable play The Pope and the Witch which the University of Minnesota (a landgrant school) Theatre Department has been producing. Here is part of the e-mail:
We are in the midst of yet another horrible snowstorm, the 2nd to hit in less than however many days it has been that we keep trying to get shoveled out – everything shut down early today and no word on what will happen tomorrow – probably close to 18" total in 48 hours. The packed snow from the driveway plowing here is now past my waist, it should be up to my shoulder height tomorrow.
However, on a on a brighter and really funny note, see below:
From the (St. Paul) Pioneer Press:
"The University of Minnesota said it would close at 2:30 p.m. while Metro State University and Century and Dakota County Technical colleges have decided to close Friday as well. Tonight’s debut of the controversial University of Minnesota Theatre play "The Pope and the Witch" also been canceled."
God really has had the last laugh on this one.
