I was going to respond to this yesterday, but was too busy. Yes, yes, and yes! The winter throughout most of Colorado is much milder than the average Minneapolis winter. If you're looking for a city, you'd be looking at Denver, and it's a lot milder than Mpls. I would direct you to any weather website for verification.

I don't know what the arts scene in Denver is like for a performer, but there is a lot of theater around here.

Yep, Denver is a possibility, but the cost of living may be on a par with San Diego and I'm trying to find someplace less expensive to live. I think the acting (and music) scene is still lively there.

I think you will find Denver's cost of living lower than that of SD. That is what most people who have moved from Cali to Denver say. There are a lot of COL calculators on the web. I'd check it out.

Before I even looked at the responses, Minneapolis was the first city that came to mind.

Denver has the 2nd largest PAC in the Nation, and a well funded cultural fund.

I'd second taking a look at Chicago. In addition to the nationally known theaters like Goodman, Steppenwolf, Second City, there a lots of smaller theater companies there and an increasing amount of television and film work (though still nothing on the scale of NYC or LA). And as somebody already mentioned, living there is cheap for a big city. You could easily pay less than $900 a month AND have the benefit of not having to have a car because of the big mass transit system. Drawbacks would be getting used to the winter weather and finding a day job. Unemployment hovers at 10%. But your success in that will depend on so many other factors--experience, field of work desired, who you might knows, and just plain luck--that no one can predict that for you.

NY and LA (including torrance and fullerton which have very good community theatre groups)

I would give Pittsburgh a very serious look
