Beautiful Venue !

Checking out the architecture is special enough but taking in a play is an added highlight. We saw A Midsummer Night's Dream - superb. Guthrie Theater is a must see venue !

My family and I went to the opening night of The Nature Crown and it was a really nice play. The theater is expensive and very upscale, but the atmosphere is amazing, the play was good! Tip: at night go to the Dowling Studio on the 9th floor, and look out the window you can see all of Minneapolis. It's... More

With only a few hours to experience Minneapolis, I was on a whirlwind tour of the notable sites and was next door at the Mill City Museum and one of the employees there sent me over to the Guthrie to check out the view! Unfortunately, there were practices going on, so I wasn't able to peek into any of the... More

The Guthrie has long been one of the best theatres in the country and it is showing no signs of slowing down. Recently saw a great production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. The building is also so cool to explore, even when you are not going to enjoy a production.

I have been fortunate enough to attend many productions here and have loved each one. It is always a joy to dress up for the theater and enjoy incredible performances. It is a wonderful experience for couples, families, and students on field trips. Enjoy a spectacular outing here!

Minneapolis is such a great theater town, with the jewel being the remarkable Guthrie Theater complex. Surrounded by terrific restaurants, guaranteed to provide a grand time.

I have been to the Guthrie many times to see plays or simply to enjoy the building itself. It never stops being charming and trendy. I highly recommend both seeing a play here and coming just to enjoy the views it offers from the overlook and the yellow room up top.

I was in town for business and realized the Guthrie was right behind my hotel. I was able to get a "Rush ticket" which is where they sell any remaining seats. I was treated to a performance of "Midsommer Night's Dream". It was done in a "theatre in the round" setting so most seats had a great view. High energy,... More

Attended "The Cocktail Hour" in December with friends. Never having been to the Guthrie, it was an amazing beautiful venue. Classy yet casual. I just secured tickets for a Midsummer Nights Dream and looking forward to making time to browse the gift shop to see what treasures it has in store. The stagings were well done, and the seats were... More

Wonderful play, actors, staff, and the building itself is a work of art. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and would recommend this theater to anyone. Well worth the money. I did not eat at the restaurant as it was priced higher so I can't review that part but everything else was great!!
