Theater Latté Da is proud to be Minnesota’s only regional theater–and one of few organizations in the country–devoted exclusively to new and adventuresome musical theater. 

Founded in 1998, Theater Latté Da emerged from the successful collaboration between lifelong friends Peter Rothstein and Denise Prosek. Through the twenty-six seasons that have followed, the Latté Da has grown to become a national leader in musical theater, built by the incredible community of theatermakers who call Minnesota home. 

This work has included:

  • 15 world premieres of new musicals or plays with music
  • 90 mainstage productions created by thousands of Minnesota theatermakers
  • 2,893 performances across the Twin Cities and at The Ritz Theater, home to Latté Da since 2014
  • Over 673,000 audience members who have come together for the shared experience of emotionally and intellectually engaging productions

In October 2023, Latté Da celebrated a milestone by welcoming new Artistic Director Justin Lucero after wishing a heartfelt farewell to Peter Rothstein following twenty-five years of bold, thought-provoking, and beautiful work. 

During the 2023 Give to the Max campaign, we are excited to share our gratitude with a priceless opportunity. This year, the TOP 8 DONORS who make their gift on or before November 16 will receive a photo shoot on the set of CHRISTMAS AT THE LOCAL! 

Looking for the perfect holiday cards to send out to friends and family? A portrait to hang on your living room wall? Become a local yourself and impress your friends and family with this invaluable experience. More details will be shared with the TOP 8 DONORS. If you have questions, please contact Hilary Smith, Director of Development,
