“Odd version of a classic, nicely done”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

Not sure how close to the original this productions is but in an effort not to be a spoiler, won't belabor that point here. Had the fun feel all in all of the Agatha Christie era, which is what we all desire. Have to say, there was a tense feeling with the house managers stalking about and looking concerned over.....not sure what! Seats not the comfiest, have a feeling this place in its 60 year has many devotees and not much concern about these details. NIce places nearby to get a nosh and a glass of wine, as this theatre does not feature refreshments. Was hoping for a bit more to be honestl

“Value, Location and Entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2010

This small venue is one of the oldest theaters in the metro area and offers live theatre about three days a week. Performances are normally for a a for week period or so. There range is from classic to first run. Sets are modest but you have some good actors on the stage. The cost is about $10.00 a ticket and they are in the west bank area by the University of Minnesota. If you are on a tight budget and want to see good theater give this place a try.

Parking is best found in a nearby hotel ramp. food options are not great nearby but there are a few with in an easy walk. In the summer this area is full of college age kids, so beware the crowds.

“Best theatre for the price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2008

I was turned on to this theatre years ago by a friend. I was told not to dress up, as it was pretty much a "come as you are" place, and he was right. It has become my favorite place in Minneapolis to catch a play.
The theatre is small, and there is no "bad seat". Preformances are very well done, and they have all the glory of the plays I have seen elsewhere, yet ticket prices range from about $15-20, depending on if it is a musical or not. All tickets are the same price. It is a small theatre. seating no more than about 250, if I have my numbers right. They are a "jeans and t-shirt" place, yet some do dress up to come here. It's a great place to spend a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday afternoon.
It's located on the West Bank of the U, and with Grandma's Saloon, Chipolte, Noodles, and Sargent Prestons (and several other restaurants within walking distance), it makes for a delightful evening.
I am from the area, and have been a season ticket holder for years, and never been disappointed at a preformance. As I said, it's a lot more laid back than the Guthrie or Ordway, and the prices can't be beat!
I would highy recommend it to anyone who is spending a weekend in Minneapolis. Check them out at TRP.org.
