Attended a performance of "Million Dollar Quartet". Growing up I had attended lots of performances at the Old Log Theater, but after graduating from college I moved out of the area. I happened to be in the Twin Cities visiting family, a friend suggested attending the performance. There is plenty of parking available, the lobby is warm and inviting, and... More

My husband & I attended the Saturday matinee of a Million Dollar Quartet on Sunday, January 29 and it was totally awesome! The actors that portrayed Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis did a fantastic job! I enjoyed it enough that I actually went back to see it a second time before that production ended.

We love the humorous plays that the Old Log is known for! It's always a good time and the ambiance is great. The atmosphere is casual and relaxing; and in the summer the grounds are beautiful.

We have attended several plays at the Old Log. The children's productions are a perfect outing with the Grandkids. The Reluctant Dragon was a wonderful play for the grandkids and time for us with them. It was well done, with a perfect pace to keep the grandkids attention.

We have been here before. I have taken my grandchild here for their Christmas show. My wife has not been here since it was remodeled, she enjoyed it more now. We saw "Million Dollar Quartet" This was presented very well. (great) We do have season ticket to the Orpheum in Minneapolis but the Old Log sure is worth your time.... More

Attended a musical play in Old Log theatre. It was really fun - the decorations, light, music & acting - all summed up to be a really good show. Not overcrowded, plenty of parking space. Would definitely recommend.

We get to the Old Log Theater once or twice a year. We always find the shows entertaining and good value. We saw the Million Dollar Quartet yesterday and it had great voices and lots of energy. Mollie Fischer who played Dyanne had an exceptional voice, great dance and stage presence.

My family use to go to the Old Log Theater when I was a child, but I had never returned, as an adult (although I still live in the area). I have been a season ticket holder at the State and Orpheum theaters downtown Minneapolis, so hadn't returned to the smaller theater venues. However, this year we had our family... More

this was our first visit since being remodeled and it looks much brighter and up to date. I really like that they are doing more mainline plays ( we saw Million Dollar Quartet and it was great)..the British farces they were serving up under the old ownership were getting stale. I like that you can bring in a drink to... More
