Great performances and an intimate theater. However, the Woody Guthrie show was not their best. The ticket prices are reasonable.

This play is both engaging and entertaining. It is so good that I will be seeing it for the 4th time this Saturday and taking guests with me again. Though there is nothing objectionable about it, it probably won't interest children. I am looking forward to taking my grandchildren to see Charlie's Aunt this summer.

Have been avid fans for all 27 years. It is remarkable how this theatre has been able to achieve such a high level of excellence and to sustain it for so long. The dedication and talent combine to give memorable theater.

Fun night out. Theater was very uniquely decorated! Musical show as great! Actors were great. Would definitely see another show when we come back.

Ibsen's Master Builder is thought provoking and somewhat dark. We always enjoy the cast and play selection at the Commonweal. We have been season ticket holders for many years.

Nice setting for a play. Not a bad seat in the house. The actors were extremely talented. Overall a great time and can't wait to go back.

It was a fantastic show. I've been going to Minneapolis shows for years and hadn't been to such a small theatre - but wow did it impress. I fully recommend seeing a show when you're in Lanesboro.

We had the opportunity to visit the Commonweal for their Christmas Show this year. It was performed by three actors, who did a tremendous job! The evening was very enjoyable, and we will definitely be back!

We saw "Around the World in 80 Days". This was our first time at the Commonweal and I hope to be a season ticket holder after seeing this performance. We live two hours away but this was definitely worth the trip. The acting was amazing and the fun fact was that there were five actors playing 34 different characters! The... More

This was an off season production. It only had a cast of three, but they were great. This was the third production we saw this year. It was not as good as the other two but we had a fun time. The actors did a great job and so did the audience. We already have picked out the shows we... More
