Under Joe Dowling's administration, the theater has gotten a little more experimental than its once strict classical approach to theater.
Sometimes, the old stories are the best ones, and there are few older than Homer's The Iliad. The poem is nearly 3,000 years old, but the tale of t...

For years, actor and director Roger Rees has loved Ivan Turgenev's second novel, even though it never was all that popular outside of Russia. One issue? An awkward title that translates, at best, as "... More »
In the world of Shakespeare, nothing brings nearly as much delight as the prospect of seeing the overbearing steward Malvolio get his comeuppance when he appears dressed in cross-gartered yellow stock... More »

To introduce a visitor to the best that Minneapolis's urban side has to offer, climb up through Jean Nouvel's masterpiece building and then out the equivalent of 12 building stories toward the Mississippi (you can stop for coffee at the Guthrie's Level Five Express along the way). Take a seat on the steps outside, drink in hand, and show off our city's core. Look, you can say, this is the great river, and that's St. Anthony Falls, which is why the city exists. Those are the mill ruins, and... More »
It's hard not to love the Guthrie for its wonderful stage productions, but it's also a hotspot for sweeping views of the Mississippi River. The cantilevered bridge jutting out toward the river offers views of St. Anthony Falls and the Stone Arch Bridge, either from an indoor ramp off the fourth and fifth floors or an outside observation deck that is sure to put you in a romantic mood. Even if your play is on the main stage, it's well worth taking a trip up to the Dowling Studio on the ninth... More »
The Guthrie's staging of Tony Kushner's volcanic, spiritually ambitious musical struck with explosive force, particularly the breakout performance of Greta Oglesby in the title role. It was, in a sense, a slight story revolving around change left in a boy's pocket and whether or not his family's maid should be allowed to keep it. But it rode currents of memory, loss, despair, and disenfranchisement that resulted in a passionate depiction of the soul's dark yearning. The cast was nothing less... More »
A great view is as much about the place you're sitting as it is the thing you're looking at. No place in the Twin Cities embodies that maxim more than the Endless Bridge at the Guthrie Theater. Erected when the new Guthrie went up in 2006, the bridge sticks out of the blue behemoth like a flagpole off a wall. Though it looks ugly from ground level, the observation deck is a place of peace, with clean, hard lines edged on all sides by shined metal. Looking over the Mississippi, with its lazy... More »
Sure, the new Guthrie Theater's edifice may be a bit imposing, the interior a tad too dark, and the HAL-like voice that welcomes you to the theater more than a bit unnerving, but that's forgotten once you step outside onto the theater complex's signature "Endless Bridge." On warm evenings, it's packed with well-dressed theatergoers taking in a view of the Minneapolis riverfront. From here you can see far to the west and east, taking in not only the grand sweep of the Mississippi River but... More »
