NEWS: Jungle Theater’s Abbreviated, Pay-As-You-Can Season Announced

The Jungle Theater in Minneapolis, MN.

The Jungle Theater announced its 2021-2022 season today. The historic theater in Uptown Minneapolis will present an abbreviated, three-show season with a new-for-the-theatre, pay-as-you-can model for ticketing.

This is the Jungle’s first season under new management, following the appointment of Christina Baldwin as Artistic Director and Robin Gillette as Managing Director in the Spring of 2021. The three mainstage shows are a mix of familiar and new:

  • Every Brilliant Thing by English playwright Duncan Macmillan & British comedian Jonny Donahoe. This one-man play, originally written as a star vehicle for Donahoe, amassed hundreds of UK performances before a successful Off-Broadway production in 2016. The Jungle production will be directed by Meredith McDonough, and runs October 16-November 14, 2021.
  • Redwood, a Kilroys list play by Brooklyn playwright Brittany K. Allen, was originally scheduled at the Jungle for March 2020. Its plot follows genealogical sleuthing into an exploration of slavery and its roots in a time and space-bending dramedy. The Jungle production will be directed by H. Adam Harris, and runs February 5-March 13, 2022.
  • In a co-production with Theatre Mu, Lauren Yee’s familiar Cambodian Rock Band comes to the Jungle to close out its mainstage season. This play with music also features a trek across time, starting with an escape from the Khmer Rouge and jumping back and forth across three decades. The Jungle production will be directed by Lily Tung Crystal and run June 11-July 31, 2022.

Details on the Jungle’s ancillary programming were not available at press time.
