I saw "Native Gardens" at the Guthrie. The play was hilarious and the facilities top notch. I was extremely impressed with the venue and with the cast. If I lived here, I'd definitely be a season subscriber.

If you find yourself in the Twin Cities with a free evening, head to the Guthrie Theater. You'll enjoy high quality live performances to match anything you would see on Broadway. Musicals, dramas, Shakespeare with a twist, etc.

If you want a free great view of the city, this is the place. You can go to the terrace and the amber room. It's open during the day and you can go visit even if not going for any event.

For my birthday I visited the Guthrie for the very first time. I enjoyed watching King Arthur. The theatre is breathtaking and the staff was amazing. I look forward to seeing many other plays in the future.
