“Lovely old theater, well maintained”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

If you have a chance to see something here, do it! This place is lovely. It's not huge. Garrison Keillor often performs here, and those performances are very special.
A real St. Paul landmark and a great place in which to enjoy a lecture, performance or whatever.

“Michael Connelly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

great interview and responses. kept the audience engaged throughout. I bought his new book. There were no bad seats. More such productions would be valuable. Bill Bryson would be a good fit to this format.

“Prairie Home Companion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

The only real reason to go to St Paul, and the Fitzgerald. Don't miss the Meat Loaf Supper at the show's first of the season.

“Prairie Home Companion at the Fitzgerald”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 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.

“Venerable Venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

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.
