On a recent visit to the area it was nice to see the location of one of my favorite broadcasts..."A Prairie Home Companion". No shows going on during my stay so I guess I will miss seeing Garrison before his retirement in a few months.

Caught a show here on a weekend business trip (a taping of a local NPR show, WITS). Theater is historic, beautifully maintained. Staff and volunteer ushers were perhaps the friendliest I've ever come across. And, at least on the night I attended, it was allowed to take beverages into the theater ( as God intended). Great experience.

Excellent! 3 of us went to the show on February 7th, with some amazing folks! Chris Thile, Punch Brothers, Sarah Jarosz, Billy Collins, etc... It was my first time in this theatre, and I am so glad we decided to make the trip for this show. Great old theatre, great show, and great tradition!

I LOVE this theatre. It is beautiful inside. All seats are good seats. The auditorium is decorative. The theatre has UNIQUE OLD CHARM. The Fitzgerald Theatre is conveniently located next to the Green Metro Train Line.

The Fitzgerald, named for local F. Scott Fitzgerald of "Great Gatsby" fame, is a 1910 theater that is on the National Registry of Historic Places. It was restored to house Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion" radio show, and seeing the show live at the Fitzgerald is an experience not to be missed. A truly unique opportunity to see an... More

Time travel to the '20s and old time radio. A fun, pleasant evening that felt like sitting in the living room with friends. Handicapped travelers - assistance/accommodation is available, don't hesitate to ask.

Went to the October 4 performance/broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion at the Fitz. The Fitz is a lovely, refurbished old theater. My biggest complaint is that I had to wait in line to use the ladies room before the show...and again after the show! I suppose they're limited on space and it's not easy to add a bathroom. On...

This is place where you go for Garrison Keillor shows! Check the website to see when he's in town. When there do allow time to novice the theatre and it's own history.

Had a great time at the concert in a beautifully restored theater. The reason for writing the review is to advise others to avoid parking in the ramp on Exchange diagonally across from the theater. It takes forever to get out because there is only one person working. There is no pre-pay option or machine, so everyone has to stop... More
