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.

Everything here is intelligently designed: from the gift shop to the staggered showtimes that minimize crowds before shows and during intermissions. Great views of the adjacent river walk and cityscapes. And the productions are first-rate, every time! Bravo!

Thoroughly enjoyed the latest production of Native Gardens, a very topical, funny look at the current political climate. It takes aim at all the generalizations, and stereotypes that are at odds in our country and makes one realize how jagged our assumptions can be.

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!
