We just saw Harry Connick Jr. last night and it was a wonderful show. I don't think there's a bad seat in the entire theater. It's a fairly small theater which allows for a more intimate show in my opinion. Although the seats are a...More

Fantastic theater!! The architecture is absolutely stunning!! Depending on the show you're seeing I would recommend not sitting in the front row. Second or third row of the main floor would be absolutely perfect.

Loved that we could walk from the Radisson Blu hotel in downtown Minneapolis. Nice play, lots of fun. You can order a drink in the lobby, and they had lots of options.

This theatre is beautiful!! Just sitting in the glory of this bit of history was as enjoyable as watching the Nutcracker! I really hope they never change anything about this glorious venue!

Went to see the Impractical Jokers comedy troupe The Tenderloins. Beautiful old theater. Had front row seats but they added a little barrier in front us and made two more rows for VIP ticket holders, I guess. Had a fun show!

We went to hear Jim Gaffigan, the comedian. Gorgeous theatre, nice facilities, & good show. Unfortunately, we had balcony seats - row s - and couldn't see much. Fortunately, we could hear well - not much you need to see with a stand up comedian...More
