Minneapolis’ renowned theater scene

The city’s provocative small playhouses are one of the most interesting tourist attractions in America.
And no doubt. With more than 100 venues and more theater seats per capita than any other U.S. city outside New York, the Minneapolis theater scene is booming. From cozy playhouses to majestic 3,000- seat theater, more than 30 venues offer a wide selection of performance styles:
The State, Orpheum and Pantages Theatres
play host to Broadway productions.
Can’t – misses for show- goers: the light- soaked Hennepin Avenue Theatre District, where renovated vaudeville houses- The State, Orpheum and Pantages- stage Broadway productions, touring shows and major concerts.
Minneapolis’ regional theater jewel, the Guthrie Theater also consistently presents critically- acclaimed shows.This Tony award- winning theater is the largest regional playhouse in the country. It was started by Irishman Sir Tyrone Guthrie, who needed a place to show plays to a receptive and gracious audience before hitting the cut-throat critics of New York City.

Companies such as Theatre de la Jeune Lune, Music Box Theater and the Brave New Workshop provides an innovative and offbeat twist.
Theatre de la Jeune Lune, founded by French and American actors, presents innovative plays in a beautifully designed, renovated warehouse.
Known for its innovative and sometimes unusual shows, Jeune Lune often welcomes visiting guest producers like Woody Harrelson.
At The Brave New Workshop, the oldest satirical revue theater in the country, several debut productions have toured in major U.S. cities. Visitors can also check out the Workshop’s Midnight Improv on Saturday nights. The 2003 Tony Award- winning Children’s Theatre Company offers critically acclaimed kid focused shows.
