Owner description: 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.

Amusing anecdotes from growing up in Minnesota. Band, chorus and accompanied by a singer and mandolin player.

I've been a Guthrie fan for years. All the productions are first rate and I love the rush line.

The theater itself is worth a visit, even if you're not seeing a show. Go up the escalator and out onto the big deck for some great views of the city. Sunset is the best!

Get tickets ahead of time or get rush tickets for $15 or $20 (see website for more info)--either way, it's always a special time to go to the Guthrie. The building is very unique--visit in the warmer weather and walk out on the bridge to nowhere. Plan to spend time wandering the halls looking at photos of past players--some famous faces there. Bring some cash for refreshments over intermission, if desired.

A good starting point for exploration of the river, stone arch bridge, Mill ruins park, bike trails etc. The views from the endless bridge are spectacular and not to be missed. The gigantic escalator and interesting mirrored windows are unique too.
