Connections are all around us in this impactful play. Lost items, missed taxis, tragedy, they’re all red strings that tie us to one another. Comedic at times, poignant at others, this musical features four characters whose stories are just a handful in the 8.3 million others that create the vibrance of the New York City landscape.

This theatre is so cool! The building is beautiful inside. The sound system was clear and we could see perfectly even from the back! All the people we encountered were amazing and kind. Highly recommend visiting if you are into theatre!

Love going to the playhouse, when we’re in Burnsville. Everyone is so friendly. The casts are always great. They are all so talented. Such an asset for the area to have.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about this local theatre! I just went to see The Red Velvet Cake War and was blown away! The show was hilarious! I can’t believe the quality of the talent at this amazing playhouse right in the heart of Burnsville. The facility holds over 250 people and this show pulled in nearly that many each night!

Where else can a mom and her 21-year-old daughter go and sit together, laugh together, and enjoy awesome entertainment in Burnsville?!? Parkway Playhouse is truly a gem in our little town!
