Cool gadgets, tech presents and easy gift ideas

Guthrie, Minnesota Orchestra add to programming; Park Square presents Halloween shows

During its 2019-20 season, before that ended abruptly in early April, the Guthrie celebrated Arab artistry with a series of plays and a conversation. One of the plays was Remote Theater Project’s production of “Grey Rock,” written and directed by Palestinian artist Amir Nizar Zuabi.

Now the Guthrie has joined with five other arts organizations to present Zuabi’s “This Is Who I Am,” to be streamed over Zoom from Nov. 29 to Dec. 27.
