TRP rarely offers true stinkers, but I find that it's sterling reputation is often in question. It is, first and foremost, an amateur theater, and as such, stages some very good theater indeed! However, I have often been disappointed with its productions. Twin Cities critics can be much too kind to TRP, perhaps because such impressive effort goes into the theater's non-professional productions. (The critics should poke their heads out and see that other non- and semi-pro theaters can offer the same or better quality.) I've come to expect over-acting and thrust-stage presentations. (It's ""in the round,"" folks!) Still, when a production scores, it can top-notch. Check the word-on-the-street before you plunk down your money for a ticket.
Pros: Inexpensive, Interesting selection
