We've been here many times, and usually laugh a ton. I can usually get past the fact that many skits have something political in them, but it was just too much this time. You can do it some, but if you do it too much,...More

We saw the 10pm show, The Polarizing Express. The comics had us bent over laughing! The drinks were reasonably-priced, and the server was very efficient. We would definitely make this a stop on our next trip to Minneapolis.

The show is fun and the performances are spot on. They do not pull their punches and this is not a place for the easily offended. It is an inexpensive evening and I enjoyed myself.

While visiting Minneapolis for the weekend, we decided to buy tickets for this show due to its high rating. We were not disappointed! Their skit that weekend, "Guardians of the Fallacy", was absolutely hilarious. The theatre is relatively small, so any seat is a good...More

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.

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
