Aside from the fact that she's slowly dying inside, Edna Pontellier is doing relatively well. Adapted freely from Kate Chopin's landmark feminist novel of 1899, this Savage Umbrella take on The Awakening was originally produced in 2010, and now they've brought this reimagining back to the stage for their 10th anniversary season. Focusing on Edna's struggle to become her most authentic self in a society unwilling to see her for who she is, The Awakening unfolds its hilarious and heartbreaking story amidst music, waves and sexual tension as thick as the humid New Orleans air at The Southern Theater in Minneapolis.
