STAY NEAR THEATERS ON HENNEPIN AVENUE
Positioned within a five-minute walk of one of the nation's largest theater scenes, the Radisson Blu invites hotel guests to enjoy a night of the arts while in downtown Minneapolis. Choose from musicals, plays, family shows, ballets, operas and even stand-up performances—you can see a different show every night of your trip.
Supporting the rich history of the district, the Hennepin Theater Trust manages some of the top venues in the city, which include the Orpheum, State, Pantages and New Century Theaters, many of which have been revitalized to their former glory. Catch classic Broadway shows at the Orpheum and Pantages, or attend a concert at the State. If you're interested in the story of "Theatre Row," you can also tour several of the playhouses.
For a more modern take on the scene, check out one of the newer spots like the Skyway Theater or attend one of the annual festivals. Skyway is a trendy venue that mixes nightlife with musical performances by popular and indie artists. During the first two weeks of August, visitors can also attend shows at the Illusion and New Century, two of the downtown theaters for the Minnesota Fringe Festival, the largest non-juried festival in the U.S.
