What’s life really like at city hall? R.T. Rybak served three terms as mayor of Minneapolis, and he has a new book out about his time there. From airport noise to potholes, from neighborhood revitalization to potholes, economic and social justice to potholes, Rybak tackled many issues during his time in office (most often potholes though).

What is the show?
Our interview based show is a powerful medium for exploring issues and bringing them to life using theater. All of the ideas and challenges brought up in this conversation serve as the inspiration for the improvised scenes to follow. The improvisers tasks are not to make light of the issues or mock the players involved. Instead, scenes make the previous conversation come to life with living, breathing characters in the situations described. It’s a show unlike any other.
