So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz … but from a different angle. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked, the untold true story of the Witches of Oz — transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story that USA Today cheers is “a complete triumph! An original musical that will make you laugh, cry and think.”
The economy is in freefall, every day the news gives us something else to be terrified about, and things are so crazy politically that most people have forgotten there’s a war going on in Europe. You need a laugh! And lucky for you, tickets to this show cost less than what you’d pay to fill an F-150. The Brave New Workshop invites you to This Show is Cheaper than Gas– America on Empty. If you feel like your tank is on empty, then this is the show for you.
This exhibit features work created by current faculty at Minneapolis College. The pieces featured in this exhibition showcase the wide-ranging talent among their faculty, giving students and the community alike an opportunity to get to know and celebrate their work. You can find our pop-up gallery within City Center (615 Hennepin Avenue) on the second floor at skyway level.
Hennepin Theater District has a rich history of theater. Since the 1850s, Hennepin Avenue has been home to amusement halls, gathering spaces and theatrical prosceniums. And we know that the history of storytelling in Minneapolis reaches even further back, before white settlers ever came upon the area. There is a centuries long tradition of Native American storytelling.
Discover the Heart of Hennepin, a yearlong celebration for the Orpheum, State and Pantages theatres, along with The Hennepin event center (900 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis) and 824 Hennepin, home to the Brave New Workshop comedy theatre. The centennial celebration honors the past 100 years of the Hennepin Theatre District and looks ahead to what the future holds for the arts, the Trust and downtown neighbors.
The Trust is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies on charitable contributions from our community. Thanks to our supporters, we are able to instill confidence and community connection in more than 6,000 students statewide through our arts education programs, elevate and financially support the creative works of local artists and provide meaningful arts and cultural experiences to the more than 600,000 people we bring to the Hennepin Theatre District annually. When you donate to Hennepin Theatre Trust, you are enabling cultural and economic vitality to flourish statewide.
