    The Scottboro Boys is phenomenal!!! The performance and artistry is so wonderful you want to clap, but the story is so sad for America you wonder if you should. Don't miss this!!!!

    The first play I saw at the Guthrie Theater was F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “A Great Gatsby” and I loved it. The Guthrie is great place to see live theater and architecturally the building is a true asset to Minneapolis.

    The theater opened in 1963 with a production of Hamlet directed by Sir Tyrone Guthrie, the theater's founder. It was created to host performances that were removed from the atmosphere of Broadway.

    Can't afford $50 Guthrie tickets? Line up right before showtime: tickets go on sale at half-price 10 minutes before each performance.

    Enjoy the view from the end of the endless bridge.

    At intermission, head straight for the 4th floor bar underneath the Endless Bridge. Better selection of drinks, and no lines!
