“We’re excited to announce rescheduled dates as we look forward to Broadway returning to the Hennepin Theatre District,” said Mark Nerenhausen, president and CEO of Hennepin Theatre Trust. “Throughout the pandemic, we’ve come to understand and appreciate how deeply shared experiences impact us as people. The totality of the shared experience such as attending live events, spending an evening with friends, dining in restaurants or simply enjoying the atmosphere contribute to vibrancy and economic vitality of the District.” He also added that the Trust will continue to follow the health and safety guidelines to be prepared for any unforeseen scheduling changes.
