Six Points Theater

Exploring universal stories through a Jewish lens, Six Points Theater brings artists and audiences together in an intimate setting to create provocative theater that reveals the common threads of humanity.

Six Points Theater, formerly Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company, is known as the preeminent independent professional theater in the United States exploring life through a Jewish lens. Since 1995, Six Points Theater has produced over 100 plays and musicals, including 13 world premieres, and five commissions.

Six Points Theater's work garnered five Ivey Awards and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council Arts Achievement Award. Locally and nationally recognized as a leader producing bold and thought-provoking work, Six Points Theater' ignites the hearts and minds of people of all cultural backgrounds, entertaining and educating by highlighting the universality of our experiences and promoting tolerance in our world. 

The 2023 - 2024 Season, the theater's 29th:

  • We started this year in August with a new experience for Six Points Theater, a Community Event, called Kvell and Chuckle. It featured stand-up comedian Elise Cole; a panel of artists, Avi Aharoni, Barbara Brooks, Robert Dorfman, Nancy Marcy and Charles Numrich, who discussed Laughing Legends: The History of Jewish Comedy Onstage; Mad Magazine and the Jewish Influence on Modern American Humor with Dan Schlissel, and TV and Jewish Comedy with playwright Wendy Kout.
  • Jonathan Shapiro's Sisters in Law, is a play about the unique relationship between the first two women Supreme Court Justices, Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 
  • The Gentle Jewess of Venice, a world premiere by Martin Coren, follows Shylock from William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, who's forced to renounce his Judaism and is estranged from his beloved daughter. In this new play, a year later, Jessica allows her father back into her life.
  • Harvey Fierstein's Torch Song is based on the award-winning comedy Torch Song Trilogy which helped set the stage for the emergence of gay rights and the fight for human dignity. Torch Song, updated by the playwright, reminds us how fragile those rights remain.

Our season of productions is complemented by our Doorways Programs. Community forums, post-show symposia, panel discussions, written communications, and work with schoolchildren are designed to open the doors to greater understanding and enjoyment of the plays Six Points Theater presents and to deepen insights into the subjects and issues they address

Wellsprings is our initiative to develop new Jewish plays with the goal of bringing them to national awareness.
