We've been theatre goers since the 60s, and this production of THE MUSIC MAN is definitely one of the BEST performances we've seen at the Guthrie. The chorus: dancers, singers and River City band members are ENERGETIC, COMMITTED, AND HAVING THE TIMES OF THEIR LIVES!!! The sets are wonderfully workable and beautiful at the same time. The orchestra and conductor... More

Have been to theaters in many cities but this one is only trumped by the Sydney House. Play we saw was excellent. we were there the night of the Aquatennial fireworks, a treat after the show from the theatre patio.

I was in Minneapolis on business and was looking for something to do on a Friday night before my flight out on Saturday morning. I settled on seeing the music man at the Guthrie. What a fabulous find! There is not a bad seat in the house, and the show was outstanding. Incredible talent throughout the entire cast. If you... More

We saw the Music Man on a Thursday evening in July. What a beautiful theater! The performance was excellent and so professionally performed. I was shocked that a "local" production could be so top notch. Would recommend any show here if you are in town! All seats are good here. Do not be afraid to sit in top row (we... More

Ever wonder what it looks like behind the stage. This tour takes you into the two main theaters and gives you a good understanding of why and how it was designed that way. Then it is off to see the where the scenery is made, custumes are designed and made, and how well designed the Guthrie really is for both... More

Fabulous fun night. Went with friend but great for the whole family. The actors were great. The costumes were so good . The music made you want to skip home with a smile.

We visited on Saturday, July 18, 2015 for a 1:00 pm matinee of The Music Man. Parking is so easy. The ramp is directly across the street from the front door of the theater. On performance days, you pre-pay at the entrance of the ramp and then get your ticket for easy exit. $8.00 for the day. The theater is... More

We enjoyed Music Man sooooo much. Such a great performance! And when you see a show at the Guthrie, don't miss the "Endless Bridge" and the gorgeous view over Mississippi River. Should you want to have dinner before, Sea Change right at the Guthrie offers excellent fish. You MUST try the Bouillabaisse!
