Twin Cities' Thriving Theater Scene
Elegance at the Ordway
Consider this typical night: Though most patrons have settled into one of the 1,900 seats at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, a few hundred elegantly dressed people still chat softly over glasses of wine, lingering in the soaring two-story glass lobby (left) with a view of downtown Saint Paul. A trumpet fanfare cuts through conversation, signaling that the play will soon begin. But that's only one of the productions about to start in the Twin Cities.
