“Prairie Home Companion at the Fitzgerald”
Review of Fitzgerald Theater

Fitzgerald Theater
Ranked #25 of 127 things to do in Saint Paul
Attraction details
Reviewed November 25, 2013

If you've heard PHC you love PHC, and seeing it live at the Fitzgerald is perfect. A nice old theater, it captures exactly what you'd think sitting and being in a radio audience in the '30s would feel like. And once you've done it, every time you listen to PHC on the radio you will see the performance "live" in your mind.

I probably like the theater more for the event than the venue itself, but it was the perfect venue.

We saw an artist in performance for the second time in 2 months at "The Fitz". It is a throwback theater from another area, home to the "Prairie Home Companion" radio show and site of the movie of the same name. It is a memorable venue for the performing arts.

Not Prairie Home Companion! We had to go later in the evening and so went to the Rhubarb show. It was AMAZING!!! TONS of live music! Great jokes and comedian. NO lake wobegon stories but more of a variety show than storytelling. 2 and a half hours of the most wonderful entertainment around.

Even sitting in the second-to-last main floor row, we experienced great seats and acoustics for "A Prairie Home Companion." Theatre staff was very gracious and professional, and everything was comfortable even though every seat was filled. A beautiful setting that made the show even more enjoyable.

I went to the Fitzgerald Theater for "A Prairie Home Companion" on September 28. I had a great time. The theater itself is a nice ode to times past.
