Location Description:

Gremlin Theater is an intimate performance space nestled in the St. Anthony neighborhood of St. Paul. Focusing on thoughtful shows based in American-style realism, this theater showcases works that are accessible to all audiences. Performances take place Friday through Sunday with tickets being $20 apiece. (However, if you are under the age of 30, you are only asked to pay half your age.) With only about 120 general admission seats, show up early to give yourself plenty of time to park and grab a good seat before the show.
