Twin Cities' Thriving Theater Scene
An artistic culture
The Twin Cities' support for diversity and quality also explains why more than 50 years after its inception, the Brave New Workshop still hits home with its searing original political comedies. And why the Tony Award-winning Children's Theatre's widely attended production about the Holocaust eloquently and tactfully speaks to both children and parents. And why theaters like the State (left), the Orpheum and others continue to thrive.
"There's an artistic culture I haven't found anywhere else," local actor Robert O. Berdahl says. "I've thought about moving to L.A. or New York, but it's nice to be here, where the work is more important than the money or fame. It's more about the art."
