Minneapolis Downtown and Theatre District Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Twin Cities are second only to New York City in live theater performances and attendance per capita, and nowhere is this more apparent than in downtown Minneapolis’s Theater District. Since the 1920s, the Orpheum, State, and Pantages Theatres have opened their stages to the likes of the Marx Brothers, Jack Benny, George Burns, and Gracie Allen, and, more recently, to live productions of The Lion King—which premiered at the Orpheum—and The Graduate, starring Kathleen Turner.
All three venues also offer great live music and comedy, with touring acts as varied as Margaret Cho, Eric Idle, Bebel Gilberto, and Modest Mouse. This walk takes you through the historic neighborhood, as well as all the cool places to hang out before and after theater events."
