One of my personal favorite theatres in Minneapolis is located right off Lyndale in the incredible Uptown neighborhood. The Jungle Theater focuses primarily on telling stories that matter, with deep care and attention to detail. Last year I saw A Doll’s House, Part II and it remains today to be one of my favorite local performances I’ve ever seen. In my mind, great theater is not only there to entertain but also help challenge societal views and spark a conversation on challenging topics which the Jungle does flawlessly.
Don’t take my word for it, check out the numerous awards they’ve won over the years. They clearly know what they are doing. Tickets for the intimate 150-seat theater typically run between $40 - $50 which is a steal for the quality and caliber that these performances are. Before or after you go to a show, check out Lynlake Brewery located directly across the street!
LOCAL TIP: The Jungle Theater is right off of the busy Lyndale ave which means parking can be a bit of a pain. There is a lot behind the theater you can pay. If you’re looking for free street parking, there is plenty around and you can take a nice stroll, weather permitting of course.
