Vibrant and distinctive
Every night, the lights go down in theaters all across the Twin Cities, and the shows begin. Posh multimillion-dollar theaters host proven Broadway plays, and urban warehouse spaces showcase cutting-edge works. Hennepin Avenue (left), a.k.a., the Theatre District, glitters in Minneapolis.
The Twin Cities boast more theater seats per capita than any U.S. metro except New York City. And historically, Minnesota ranks near the top nationwide in federal and state arts funding. It also has a strong history of private arts philanthropy.
It's more than funding and fancy fact-finding, though, that make offerings on Twin Cities stages vibrant, distinctive and envy-inspiring. Quality, variety and community support feed off one another to create a theater scene that's among the best and most diverse in the nation.
