Wolves get a bad rap, but they receive it through no fault of their own. The wolves in Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs were both motivated only out of hunger, Wolf Blitzer was probably just coming out of a bad breakup when he scored negative $4,600 on Celebrity Jeopardy!, and Tom Wolfe’s A Man in Full only seemed lackluster because it had to be compared to his earlier masterpiece Bonfire of the Vanities. In fact, wolves are lovely creatures deserving only of our admiration, protection, and beaver carcasses.
Something Rotten! is coming to Bismarck! Conceived by the Kirkpatrick brothers in the 1990s and ripened in development until its Broadway premiere in 2015, the musical comedy tells the story of theatricians Nick and Nigel Bottom and their quest to get a leg up on some obscure literary figure named William Shakespeare. Something Rotten! plays with classical themes and pays homage to beloved productions like Les Misérables (a timeless epic about two innkeepers on a quest to recover their adopted daughter after she’d been absconded with by an ex-convict) and West Side Story (which teaches audiences that jazz tap provides a solid foundation for knife fighting techniques), but also reinvigorates them with modern twists and humor. The original production was nominated for ten Tony Awards, more than enough to merit its ongoing national tour.

Because she grew up in the strange and distant land of South Dakota, Sandy Meyer wasn’t familiar with the history of the 19th century Colonel Hankinson Mansion in Hankinson, ND when she first saw it. Rather, what she saw was something she wanted dearly. She said as much to her husband, career dairy and cattle feed farmer Marshall Meyer, who with the pragmatism characteristic of his profession explained that owning such an old home was out of the question.
