    2605 Hennepin Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55408-1150
    612-332-6620

    http://www.bravenewworkshop.org When the Brave New Workshop moved its main operations to downtown Minneapolis, it left its longstanding Uptown storefront location behind. The old theater (the Workshop’s home since the mid-'60s) was renamed the Student Union, as the efforts now focus on training the next generation of Twin Cities comics, or just those interested in a class or two on performance and improvisation. The Student Union offers courses for adults and students in improvisation and sketch writing. The instructors are drawn from Brave New Workshop’s extensive alumni ranks, including Joe Bozic and Mike Fotis (both are also co-directors of the Brave New Institute), Lauren Anderson, Brave New Workshop musical director Peter Guertin and BNW director Caleb McEwen. Even if you aren’t interested in being a student, the Student Union offers regular performances in the longstanding space. There are spotlight performances as each class finishes its work, along with programs like the Friday Night Stage Match, where teams of students and alumni compete head-to-head for the title of “best comics of the night.” The prices are right – from free to $5 – and you never know when you might see the next Al Franken.

    Jungle Theater

    2951 Lyndale Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55408
    612-822-7063

    http://www.jungletheater.com For more than two decades, Bain Boehlke’s creation has provided a striking mix of classical theater, 20th-century classics, and modern works. Boehlke was past 50 when the theater veteran had an epiphany about starting a small theater in the Twin Cities. It opened in a 90-seat storefront theater on Lake Street and quickly established itself as one of the places to go for high-quality theater in Minneapolis. The theater thrived and later moved to its present location a couple of blocks away on Lyndale. Though the stage and seating is a bit larger, the venue is still intimate. The Jungle presents five or six productions each year, ranging from recent works (Venus in Fur and Urinetown) to classics (Hamlet). Mid-century pieces are a real specialty for Boehlke and the other directors, tackling the likes of Waiting of Godot, The Glass Menagerie and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf in recent years. All of this has made the Jungle a popular place for actors, both young and veteran, to ply their trade. Not every production at the Jungle works – no theater can claim that – but you will always find a well-made and well-acted piece inside its walls. More >>

  • Open Eye Figure Theatre

    506 E. 24th St. Minneapolis, MN 55405
    612-874-6338

    http://www.openeyetheatre.org Master puppeteer Michael Sommers and his partner Susan Haas operated Open Eye for years before they had their own theater, not even needing a set stage to showcase their work. The popular summer Driveway Tour, where Sommers and crew show up to peoples' houses to put on a show, continues to this day. Still, having a staging area for their work has increased Open Eye’s standing in town. While a good chunk of the work is aimed at children and all-ages audiences, there is also programming aimed at older audiences. In A Hole, Sommers took the audience down Alice’s rabbit hole via a multi-part piece that took place throughout Open Eye’s space, including a tea party in pack. There were few puppets in To The Moon, but the merging of The Honeymooners and Greek tragedy showcased the theater’s usual innovation. A fiercely loyal collaborator, Sommers brings in talented artists to bring their ideas to magnificent, and sometimes mad, life. Frequent collaborators include popular storyteller and writer Kevin Kling, whose artistic vision meshes well with Sommers own. Their summer shows are always a hot ticket. Open Eye is also a popular venue for other companies to use, with the like of Frank and the Loudmouth Collective using the unique space to fine effect. More >>

  • Pillsbury House Theatre

    Pillsbury House Theatre

    3501 Chicago Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55404
    612-825-0459

    http://www.pillsburyhousetheatre.org In recent years, Pillsbury House Theatre’s most noticeable productions have been in the Guthrie’s Dowling Studio. They have produced two of Tarell Alvin McCraney’s Brother/Sister plays (with the Mount Curve Company), In the Red and Brown Water, and The Brothers Size, earning plenty best-of-year nods. Buzzer, a third piece that first appeared at Pillsbury House’s theater and then was remounted downtown, earned strong notices and accolades during both of its runs. Like much of Pillsbury House’s work, these plays dove headfirst into issues of race, class, and identity in modern America. That’s not surprising for a theater entrenched in such a diverse neighborhood: the Chicago Avenue location still plays host to much of Pillsbury House’s programming, which includes multiple main stage programs, special events, and community outreach. This includes Non-English Speaking Spoken Here: The Late Nite Series, which brings in innovative artists in different media to present work at the theater; and the new-works series Naked Stages. Community outreach comes in the form of the Chicago Avenue Project and Breaking Ice. More >>
