This was a very fun evening. The theater is small and all seats are good. We were late getting tickets and were in the front row which for this play was great. The play was well cast and all played their parts well. The play was really entertaining and the ending not revealed through the play. Nero Wolfe was particularly well cast and played his part well. We have enjoyed several plays at this venue and come over from Minneapolis where we live, have a nice dinner at several nearby restaurants, split some wine with dinner, see the 2 hour play and easily drive home, making for a very enjoyable, relaxed and fun evening.

Park Square Theater is one of the upper echelon theaters in the Twin Cities. And that is saying a lot since the number, variety, and quality of theater companies in the area is quite high. Park Square's season will encompass classical productions like Othello or Cyrano, musicals like The Color Purple or Ragtime, regional premieres of Broadway and off-Broadwayhits like August, Osage County, and new works. A smaller thrust stage opens in Fall, 2014. The all-around quality of Park Square productions make it a great option for entertainment in St. Paul. h.s

Park Square Theatre is a lovely little theater in St. Paul. You should make an effort to attend a performance. The acting is superb. Staff and volunteers go out of their way to ensure your experience is worthwhile.

We do go to lots of plays but infrequently in the Twin Cities because we live in outstate Minnesota. In December we attended the Park Square Theatre for the first time and had a very positive experience. We saw the play about Ira Gershwin that included loads of music and singing. The seats were comfortable and it was easy to see and hear. It was not a gigantic place and small enough to have an intimate feel (unless you were in the vary back rows). The prices were reasonable and getting tickets was easy. They seem to have a nice variety of plays based on their recent history and what's upcoming. We hope to return in the future, maybe this spring for Cyrano!
The theatre is right in downtown St. Paul. It's on a one block pedestrian only street and a short walk from Rice Park and some of the best known attractions in downtown St. Paul like the Ordway Theatre, Landmark Center, and the St. Paul Hotel. There are plenty of parking ramps in the vicinity too plus parking meters a short walk away.

Totally enjoyed the performance of Mary T. and Lizzie K. on a Sunday afternoon in October. This theatre is tucked into downtown St. Paul and could be tricky to find for this out of towner, and I could see that parking would be a challenge on the streets or finding a ramp. I was happy to make this first visit to this location on a non busy Sunday. The seating in the theatre is great, comfortable and roomy, sight lines seem to be good from any seat that would be chosen. The performance was top quality in acting and staging. Great to see Linda Kelsey on stage again and to have exposure to another part of the history of the Lincoln family. I will try to return for more performances when in town again.
