Level Nine

Community. Conversation. $9 tickets.

From reduced ticket prices to dynamic community events to a fresh series of original plays, the Guthrie’s ninth floor has undergone a groundbreaking transformation. 

Learn more about Level Nine and upcoming events below. We hope to see you soon!

 

Level Nine is:

Theater for everyone
All tickets to all Level Nine performances are $9.

Vital art
We will produce and present work by acclaimed national or international artists and companies.

Impactful new work
We will commission a play by an accomplished playwright, creating art that addresses pressing questions in our society.

Devised theater
We will host three devising ensembles, which start their work with no script, over the next three years.

Homegrown theater
Local and regional theater companies, with support from the Guthrie, will continue to shape the Dowling Studio.

Community dialogue
Conversations, town hall meetings, readings, dance parties - special events will address current events and track our collective history.

The Guthrie's 9th floor experimental black box space, where all tickets are always just $9, is one of the best deals in town.

I see Level Nine as an “agora”— to use the Greek phrase — a civic space, a place of dialogue, a place to wrestle with ideas.

Artistic Director Joseph Haj

A community can be measured by the questions its theater asks.
