The theatre itself is great. This time we saw the musical My Fair Lady, and found it to be a superb production of the play. The entire company worked together seamlessly, the sets and staging were excellent. great singers and dancers performed to the best of their excellent abilities. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Tyler Michaels stood out with great stage... More

Lifelong resident of Minnesota and I had my first visit to the Guthrie last week. I was extremely impressed. The theater is modern, sophisticated and unique. Service from staff at the box office to the lobby to the theater was top notch. The show was outstanding (My Fair Lady). Great date-night! Will definitely be back again.

We have been going to many of the plays at the Guthrie over the past year and enjoyed almost all of them. My Fair Lady is running now, a beautiful job with a great cast. And we just love being in the building, the river views, the area restaurants. I would recommend a visit to any one visiting.

I have seen many productions here. You don't need to go to NYC to see great acting and most amazing set productions. And, go early to the show so you can enjoy a drink and take some pictures on the endless bridge which overlooks the Mississippi river. The Guthrie is truly a Minnesota Treasure.

We had a great time at the play we went to . The actors were great, the atmosphere was amazing. It was nice to walk around the theater during the intermission and see pictures and sculptures and of course a great view!

Spectacular theater experience all around. Not a bad seat in the house and the full Guthrie Theater environment. Just go.

The Guthrie building is open to the public most days and evenings. It offers incredible views of the riverfront, stone arch bridge, locks, 35W bridge, Hennepin and 3rd Ave bridges, the UofM and Minneapolis skyline. The endless bridge brings you out to riverfront where you have a panoramic view of the waters and all the activity on the riverfront. Go... More

Five stars for the Guthrie experience!! Our evening began with dinner at the Guthrie's Level Five Cafe--menu is limited, but there are enough choices for everyone. Entrees were delicious! The theater building itself is unique with beautiful views of the river. The performance of "My Fair Lady" did not disappoint--everything about it was near perfect from the acting to the... More

We saw a very good production of Our Countries Good by the Bolton Octagon Theatre in this fantastic modern theatre. The views from the Yellow Box and the terrace over looking the Mississippi river were amazing especially watching the sun go down.

It is a rare moment when you go to the Guthrie and leave less than thrilled. I have seen, and reviewed, many plays here and am almost always ecstatic afterwards. The theater has its own training program which puts out some great actors, but they are always careful to select from the best who would come to their stage. There... More
