Theater Offerings Around Town

COVID-19 and stay-at-home guidelines have affected all walks of life, including theaters. The Twin Cities has a vibrant theater scene but, as with all other large gatherings, performances in front of audiences have been put on hold. But that hasn’t stopped artists from creating new types of performances for you to enjoy!

TCL Executive Producer and Twin Cities theater performer Christian Unser shared a few of those projects on the show. And there are many other projects featured below!
