The Guthrie Theater has been around since 1963. It is considered an American hub for production, education, professional training and theater performance. The Guthrie Theater highlights how humanity connects Minnesota to the rest of the world.
They do this through a variety of plays, concerts, and other events that take place all throughout the year. Here are just a few of the shows you can check out this summer.
Juno and the Paycock
This play takes place in the 20th century. It depicts the survival of one family after the Irish Civil War. The Paycock, whose real name Jack Boyle, is unemployed and loving it. He spends the bulk of his time drinking and wasting time. Juno is the matriarch of the family and he is trying to keep everyone together.
This play combines tragedy and comedy to tell an amazing story. It runs from May 23rd through June 28th, 2015 and takes place on the McGuire Proscenium Stage.
The Music Man
This spectacular musical is a great way to start off your summer. It tells the story of a fast talking salesmen who wants to form a boy band with hopes of hitting it big. Once a very dishonest man, when he meets the love of his life he is completely transformed and becomes a man of integrity.
This play is full of heart and music that will have you tapping your toes. Some of the songs you will hear include “Gary, Indiana”, “Goodnight, My Someone”, and “Seventy-Six Trombones”. This play is a classic and will sell out fast. Be sure to get your tickets now or you may be left out.
