    It's an attractive and efficient lobby once you get the hang of it, and most of the plays are extremely well-done. They bat about .750 on their Shakespeare.

    Even if you don't have tickets for a show, definitely stop by to view this beautiful building.

    Last minute show tickets for $25. Set & costumes for A Christmas Carol were lovely.

    A plethora of venues and artistic options. It's a unique and necessary Minneapolis experience

    Student rates for most shows. Online and at the box office.

    Continue up to the ninth floor, to the Amber Box, walled in yellow glass, for more views (and a vertigo-inducing peek through a window in the floor). Read more

    The midnight-blue building's most compelling feature is the cantilevered "Endless Bridge" that juts out over Mill Ruins Park toward the Mississippi. Read more

    Fantastic theater complex. Make sure to go to the observation area for the views of the Mississippi River and the falls.

    Lynne Sturtevant · May 16, 2014
  • Lori N.

    Perfect seats-3rd row from front dead center. What a wonderful performance! The Mountaintop was amazing.

    Love the Guthrie! Awesomest building in the city :-)

    Kari K. · March 15, 2014
  • Gordon W.

    Great space, but the theatrical performances are uninspired and completely "safe".

    Gordon Wright · March 13, 2014
  • Austin P.

    Make sure you go out on the bridge!

    There are very nice coat lockers foe a quarter near the box office but most people haul their big storm coats to their seats. Dummies!

    Go have a delicious cocktail at the Target Lounge on the 4th floor with Tim the bartender. Such a swanky little place.

    Jolene Balsimo · November 30, 2013
  • Najla A.

    It was a great play, the actors, the performance and the customs were Broadway like.

    Leg room is terrible, like coach on an airplane

    30 or under? Join the "below 30" club and buy same-day tickets at rush line prices (~$20) without standing in the rush line.

    John Schrom · August 30, 2013
  • Mark P.

    Be on time! :)

    Strong characters, thought-provoking issues on racism, some comedy, language, and directions. Great ensemble, wonderful staff, cafe a bit higher on the price. Stop by their gift shop.

    Takes 51 seconds to get down the escalator.

    $5 parking at the surface lot. Much easier in and out.

    Had the best time when i went there and i will carry on the christmas tradition

    Shelly Garcia · June 7, 2013
  • Ryan K.

    Sign up for their mailings and emails to get lots of special deals. Or just show up an hour before the show and get in the rush line. The performances are worth full price, but cheaper is better.

    Ryan Kjesbo-Johnson · June 6, 2013
  • M Lauren H.

    Truly unique, modern theater space, perchance in the US. Perched upon the Mississippi, with the Gold Medal sign in view, the building competes with a stellar artistic line up & the great Mark Rylance.

    M Lauren Hill · May 20, 2013
  • Michael P.

    Target Lounge is the best bar here!

    Michael Petre · April 6, 2013

    This is an awesome theater!! It's has nice lounge areas and the theater seating is cozy. I totally recommend catching a show here. I'm definitely coming back!!

    Long days journey into night. Wonderful acting but I do not agree with the use of the GD word. Would have been much better without it.

    Life is theater and you are in one.

    Pre-order cocktails at the Target Lounge and avoid the lines during intermission.

    Loved it very easy to park at and find

    Tony Berglund · November 30, 2012

    Interesting architecture - two story floating bridge overlooking the Mississippi and a two story skyway for moving set pieces between the scene shop (across the street) and the theaters.

    Brendan Nee · November 3, 2012

    Best venue for a concert even ever.

    The signs on the men's room sinks hint to alternative use?

    The matinees are really affordable, scenic places to walk and people watch.

    Chesay Colson · March 7, 2012

    You don't have to have a theater ticket to check out the amazing views on their "Endless Bridge" or grab a bite at Sea Change
