Two Summer Productions at the New Commonweal

The Commonweal opened it’s beautiful new theater building on July 7 with a new summer thriller, Wait Until Dark. Written in 1964, and produced as a movie starring Audrey Hepburn in 1967, the play tells the story of a blind woman who becomes entangled in a scheme to procure her seemingly ordinary doll. Thinking she'll be an easy target, the three con men underestimate Susy's resourcefulness. (Read more about Wait Until Dark from the Commonweal.)

The Mystery of Irma Vep has made the transition from the St. Maine theater to the new Commonweal. Read Minnesota Theatre’s review of Irma Vep.

Irma Vep plays Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, through Sepetmeber 2
Wait Until Dark plays Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays through October 28.
