The Ritz Theatre
Remember that scene at the beginning of Back to the Future when Michael J. Fox’s time-traveler Marty McFly plugs his guitar into Doc Brown’s two-story amplifier?

Sure there’s the State, the Orpheum and the Ordway theatres. They are gorgeous theatres and wonderful shows grace their boards. We all know about the historic Fitzgerald Theatre in St. Paul, the famous Old Log Theatre in Excelsior and our beloved dinner theatre in Chanhassen. But, let me tell you about a few fantastic theatres you may not be aware of.
