Whither Bedlam Theatre?

If you didn’t catch it last night check out Chris Roberts’ report on Bedlam Theatre’s move. To where? That’s not clear yet. In the short term, it turns out they’re not relocating to the Seward Commons for the winter after all, but are instead moving their stuff – and offices – to the Ivey Arts Building in South Minneapolis.

Bedlam’s move makes way for the relocation of a Cedar-Riverside mosque, something that has Bedlam supporters feeling torn. They want to respect the local community’s religion, but they also feel the theater has done an amazing job of building community that transcends cultural and religious differences.

So where do you think Bedlam should make its permanent home?
