You may know that Marcia, Pilates educator and studio manager by day, actually has an alter ego! When she’s not bending people in the name of Joe she is the artistic co-director of Urban Samurai Productions, a small non profit theater company. And the newest play – ‘night, Mother – opens this Friday, August 15!
To show our support, we’re inviting Centerspace students to opening night! So this Friday, 8 pm at the New Century Theatre in downtown Minneapolis, we’re gathering to cheer on the Pilates ninja!

Look around you. Can you REALLY know what’s going on in another person’s mind? Look in their eyes – Can you tell when they’ve reached the breaking point? Do you think you could talk them down?
Nominated for four Tony Awards and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, ‘night, Mother is a raw, emotional, quietly shattering play that explores the complex nature of family relationships, our inner demons, and what makes life truly worth living.
The play tells the story of Jessie, a despondent woman who reaches out to bid farewell to her mother – and the frantic and touching efforts of her mother, Thelma, to stop her.
