Central Ave is closed just south of the theater, so come to the theater from the north.

Central Ave is closed off right near the theater, so if your coming from the south, you'll need to take 14th andgo to Monroe Ave. The detour signs are very confusing.

The lead actress - Mame Pelletier was the best thing in the show! Her facial expressions were priceless! Supporting cast was very good - especially Alana LaBissioniere & Ben Layne. We had a fun time!

We really enjoyed it. It was funny, but also told a good story. The acting was good and the theatre setting was very nice.

More Information


Freshwater Theatre Company is proud to present The Book of Liz by acclaimed writer David Sedaris and his sister, actress and writer Amy Sedaris, starring Mame Pelletier and directed by Scot Moore at the new Nimbus Theatre in northeast Minneapolis!

Sister Elizabeth (Liz) Donderstock (of the Squeamish colony) is about to be squeezed out of her life’s work – making world class cheese balls that almost single-handedly fund the colony. Her midlife version of Rumspringa and her colony’s attempts to cope with her absence paint the backdrop for this smart comedy by the brilliant brother/sister duo of David and Amy Sedaris.
