THE GUTHRIE THEATER is an American center for theater performance, production, education and professional training, known for its dynamic productions of classic and contemporary plays. Open to the public year-round, this award-winning cultural destination houses three theaters, dramatic public spaces and distinctive dining. Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel, the Guthrie is located in the historic Mill District of Downtown Minneapolis and features a 175-foot cantilever bridge which overlooks the Mississippi River. When it opened in 2006 Time magazine called the building "a 21st century dream factory." Visit the Guthrie to see a show, grab a cup of coffee and explore the building, shop at the Guthrie Store, or to simply take in the extraordinary riverfront views. Backstage tours are Friday and Saturday mornings.

On a recent visit to Minneapolis, friends took us to the Guthrie Theatre to see a play, Familiar. We all loved the play and loved the theatre. The bridge by the river was beautiful. The theatre was comfortable. Hope I get to go back again.

The play was fabulous and I highly recommend it. All components were covered - humor, poignancy, emotion, reality. The actors were great - we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Really awkward building and confusing to navigate. They have a lot of volunteers helping heard people around but it seems like they are compensating for poor architectural design. The show we saw was outstanding! “Look who’s coming to dinner” was really well set and played...More

Do whatever it takes to get you into this excellent venue. I suspect your first visit won't be your last and you will be able to judge for yourself whether premium pricing is warranted for "preferred" seating. Enjoy!
