Danger Boat Productions was excited to announce a first-of-its-kind forum and debate featuring the leading candidates for mayor of Minneapolis and hosted by the improv theater troupe The Theater of Public Policy. Never before have the top candidates vying to lead a major metropolitan city participated in a live, on-stage conversation.
