Chanhassen Dinner Theatres

The vision of founders Herb and Carol Bloomberg was to bring a “little bit of Broadway to the Midwest.” They loved traveling to New York to enjoy great Broadway productions and felt audiences deserved a quality musical theatre experience in the Twin Cities. The 90,000 square foot dinner theatre, comprised of multiple theatres including the 540-seat main stage theatre, was built on what was then cornfields and countryside, and opened in 1968

In 2010, Chanhassen Dinner Theatres were entrusted to a dedicated new ownership group led by Michael Brindisi, Tamara Kangas Erickson, and Steven L. Peters, who shared a passion for the theatre business and had a genuine devotion to this legacy organization. It was at that time Chanhassen Dinner Theatres expanded its entertainment scope beyond the musical theatre for which it was known. The new management added a comedy club, a concert series, special presentations, and an enhanced wedding and events business. They also added the locally popular Brindisi’s Pub.
