Jack Reuler was only 22 when he founded Mixed Blood Theatre to embody Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of cultural pluralism in America. Over 30 years later, Reuler and his theater still hold court in the Riverside Plaza neighborhood of Minneapolis, premiering season after season of multiracial, insightful, challenging theater for an audience who hungrily awaits every opening. Radical Hospitality is Reuler’s latest bold initiative, tackling the number one barrier that people identified preventing them from attending the theater: cost. Now anyone can attend any Mixed Blood production for free if there’s a seat available. Tickets can still be purchased in advance, however, to ensure your seat.
