Founded in 1976, this theater strives to better the Cedar Riverside community through ethnically diverse productions.
Located in a converted firehouse, Mixed Blood’s mission is dedicated to the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., which it pursues by staging mostly contemporary plays with as much spirit and edge as you’ll find anywhere in the nation. Recent seasons have seen explorations of race, gender, sexuality, nationality and differences in physical abilities—in works ranging from the worlds of sports to developing countries to modern suburbia. It also pursues a policy called Radical Hospitality, which means tickets are all free on a first-come, first-served basis (you can also pay to reserve a seat in advance).
