The torch has been passed to the younger generation. The show will do fine. Chris Thile has what it takes to host the show. There are a few changes. It's live radio people! Very unusual. It will not disappoint.

It is a lovely venue. We've been here many times. The staff is nice and helpful. The building is gorgeous and the theater itself is a great experience. The show the other night was hideous and we actually walked out but hey, not the Fitz' fault.

I had purchased the book which was highlighted in this presentation previously, so when my daughter made me aware of this program I had to attend. I was not disappointed in any way. His not only photographing the animals but helping them and the humans close to them is much admired.

Fitzgerald's Theater is a 1,000-seat theater and a huge broadcast studio, with airwaves reaching millions of people tuned in to "A Prairie Home Companion." The theater is so beautiful and comfortable. I witnessed a performance by an amazing local band. Everything was perfect. The interior is highly elegant and resemble opera houses of the turn of the century era.The theater... More

It was my good fortune to attend one of the radio broadcasts of Garrison Keillor. It was wonderful to watch after spending so many years listening to his radio show. My husband and I were thoroughly entertained. there is a refreshment counter that offers adult beverages, soft drinks and movie style candy. We were able to purchase Powdermilk Biscuit hats... More

I attended the final performance of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor as host in the Fitz! I got to go backstage and down the narrow stairs around the box seats. The restoration is amazing. This is an intimate theatre and well worth going into for a show. The seats are close and tight, so be advised. I am... More

Since I learned that Garrison Keillor is going to retire I was obsessed with finding someone to go with me on a trip to St Paul, MN. I did not know it was hosted in the Fitzgerald Theater. I just wanted to see his show life. We got to town 4:40pm and on our tickets it said that shows starts... More

Can recall my earlier comments as it's been about a year. Can recall what all the excitement was about as I am sure I would not go back.

Caught one of the Prairie Home Companion shows before Mr. Keillor's retirement. Show was great - what can one say. This was one of 3 Shubert movie theaters built about 1910 - the smallest and least ornate. It was brought back to life in the 1990s by Minn. Public Radio specifically for PHC. It is not the "knock your socks"... More

"This 1,000-seat theater acts as MPR's largest broadcast studio, with airwaves reaching millions of people tuned in to A Prairie Home Companion. Our staged productions commission authors, artists and radio hosts to create intellectually stimulating programs that delight and enlighten our vast public radio community.
