Minneapolis is home to a regional performing arts organization called Arts Mid West. Actually you want to think of what region of the US is the most beneficial for your particular discipline. I would doubt that any one city would be sufficient to rely on for a career in the performing arts. You should expect that travel will play a big part in a choice so a city that has a international airport near by would be good.You could also Google the names of people who are doing what you want to be doing and see where in the US they have chosen to live.

I think for theater you would do better in Chicago.There is a publication called Musical America that will give you an idea of where all the performing arts and theater companies are. You also need to find a source for finding out where the auditions are. You don't have to live in the city you work in. Most shows will run for a length of time or tour. You can leave your home for several months at a time while you are on the road and come when you are not working. You should get some of the logistical stuff done before relocating like getting a union card and passport.
