The Theater of Public Policy Spring Season

March 6 @ 7:00 pm-April 24 @ 9:00 pm

Laugh till you Learn Something

The Theater of Public Policy unpacks serious policy issues every Monday this spring.

In a world of “fake news” and “alternative facts” who can you trust to make sense of the major issues and debates? The improv comedy team at The Theater of Public Policy!

This spring, The Theater of Public Policy will host two candidates for governor, talk with Minneapolis’s chief of police, examine business large and small, and attempt to answer “Where does our trash go?” at shows every Monday in March and April.

But what is The Theater of Public Policy (T2P2)?

  • Shows open with a lively conversation with a newsmaker or policy wonk.
  • That conversation inspires a team of the Twin Cities most talented improvisers, who create entirely spontaneous sketches based on the interview.
  • The expert guest then answers questions from the audience.
  • The show wraps with one last round of improv from the cast.

Described “As if C-SPAN were suddenly swarmed by the cast of SNL,” The Theater of Public Policy has garnered national media attention and local fans for its unique blend of serious issues and improv comedy.
