I love the new theatre where Brave New Workshop is now living. There is not a bad seat in the house on the main level. We saw the Tipsy Kangaroo Naughty Puppet Revue. I'm still laughing... my face is sore from laughing to much. I...More

My wife and I had a great time at the Guardians of the Fallacy Show at Brave New Workshop. The actors and actresses are extremely talented. Minneapolis is outstanding for theatre and performing arts. Brave New Workshop is certainly one of the ventures worth visiting.

My wife and I were in town and wanted to see a show. We saw Beauty and the Beast, a Tinderella story. The theater is cozy, with no bad seats-we were in the last elevated row. They offer drinks and snacks, and the atmosphere is...More

Very well done and put together show!!! Skits were based on many fairytale songs/stories and spun into hilarious and modern themes relating to relationships and sexual encounters! I was expecting larger theatre setting, but was pleasantly surprised that was not the case! Great place to...More

Comedy based on life experiences we can all relate to or often times current events. Cast is great and engaging. If you're easily offended, can't take a joke or handle political satire, you should probably go watch a Disney movie instead. They usually run a...More

The first time at BNW was 41 years ago on our honeymoon. This year's Christmas show was non-stop laughter except for a couple of well timed social statements. It was obvious the cast enjoyed the evening as well.

Loved the show we saw at the Brave New Workshop Comedy Theater. "Wreck the Halls" performers were quick witted and funny. Plan to return for another dose of comedic relief!
