About
THE GUTHRIE THEATER is an American center for theater performance, production, education and professional training, known for its dynamic productions of classic and contemporary plays.

Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel, the Guthrie is located in the historic Mill District of Downtown Minneapolis and features a 175-foot cantilever bridge which overlooks the Mississippi River. When it opened in 2006 Time magazine called the building "a 21st century dream factory."

    Nice view of the river
    I have not watched any show here. We walked in just to take a peak at the interior. A gentleman/usher (there was on ongoing show) suggested we go up to check out the viewing area/overlook (free entry). It does offer a nice view overlooking the River, Bridge and Falls. There also is a room with a glass floor and yellow-tinted windows.

    Attending a play at the Guthrie is an experience! This elegant facility is located on the bank of the Mississippi in the Minneapolis Mill District. They attract some of the finest theatrical works and performers from all over the country. A trip to the Twin Cities should include taking in a performance at the Guthrie if at all possible.

    Must visit destination
    Recently traveling to Minneapolis we stumbled onto this amazing theatre and were fortunate enough that there was a performance that night. We watched “ The Importance of Being Earnest” which was fantastic. The staff were friendly and the facility itself is amazing! The facility is designed well to get people to the correct area and has comfortable seating. It has several special areas for viewing the Minneapolis city skyline, views of the Mississippi and the city from the amber glass room are worth price of admission alone.

    Perfect Every Time!
    I've probably seen half a dozen performances at the Guthrie and each one has been fantastic. This most recent was "Into the Woods." And if I was going to be back in Minneapolis in time, I'd absolutely see "For the People" as well (Oct 7-Nov 12) - incredibly innovative theater being created! The building is stunning and the views are some of the best in the city.

Fantastic performance of The Importance of Being Earnest. My dad even commented that the actors played their parts so well that we never felt like we were watching actors. A fun evening!

Both restaurants were closed in June 2023. Bummer.
The play, Shane, was disappointing. Nothing like the original book. Story has been changed a lot for this production
And too many scenes made a pity pitch for the Indians claiming bad treatment and land had been stolen, etc. these messages were over played- we dont go to the theatre to have politics thrown at us.

Seeing a play at the Guthrie theater especially on the Wurtele Thrust stage is pretty special. Performances are consistently of the highest quality, there isn’t a bad seat in the house, and prices are not indecent like some venues in town. The recent production of Hamlet was fabulous. At intermission, make sure to go outside and watch a bit of the sunset over the Mississippi River, St Anthony Falls and the Stone Arch Bridge which is pretty magical. My only gripe at this last visit was the limited concessions. They removed the bar from near the outdoor area and it would be extremely helpful if they allowed preordering of drinks for intermission so that you can enjoy the 20 minutes.
