MUSIC & PERFORMING ARTS
A Multitude of Stages
You might be surprised to learn that the Minneapolis-St. Paul area has more theater seats per capita than all U.S. cities except New York. Once here, you’ll see why. We have not one, but several theater districts, and our community theaters have given rise to some of the all-time greats from Plymouth Playhouse‘s Church Basement Ladies to Chanhassen Dinner Theatres‘ homegrown Amy Adams.
We are home to places like Brave New Workshop, the longest-running sketch comedy troupe in the country (not to mention a bunch of other hilarious comedy clubs), as well as a growing list of talented dance companies. We’d be remiss not to mention our music scene—we are the home of names like Prince and Soul Asylum, after all. Music venues populate the Twin Cities, showcasing household names and up-and-coming talent on stages like First Avenue to Xcel Energy Center.
