About us

"Give yourself an extra 15 minutes to find [Open Window]. You'll be glad you did..." -John Olive, HowWasTheShow. 2013-2014 marks the 3rd full season for Open Window, a new professional blackbox theatre near the Hennepin Theatre District in Minneapolis. Why do we exist? At Open Window we're producing inter-generational, transcendent theater - art that seeks to be a 'window' to the Divine and to the innermost reality of the human person and the world. In the words of Matthew Everett with the TC Daily Planet: "It's a daunting mission, but the seeds of accomplishing it are already present. The talent has been assembled. It will be intriguing to watch Open Window Theatre live up to their promise moving forward." We hope you agree. So don't be strangers! We want to share our new home with you, a sort of home away from home (minus the underwear on the floor). A place to gather, a place to be inspired, a place to laugh and be entertained, a place to be challenged. We look forward to seeing you soon!
