|About these ratings|
Named for founder Sir Tyrone Guthrie, the downtown theater is one of the nation's most renowned and one of the city's most beloved treasures. Having opened in 1963 with a production of Hamlet, the Guthrie Theater's repertory company has made a name for itself with its highly praised balance of classical theater and avant-garde productions. You should still visit even if you aren't planning on seeing a show; the Guthrie Theater features three individual stages, a full-service restaurant, several bars and some of the best views of Minneapolis from the banks of the Mississippi River.
Dubbed a "21st century dream factory" by TIME magazine, the Guthrie Theater is a must-see for theater buffs and architecture aficionados alike. There are several types of tours available that focus on different aspects such as structural design to backstage and costumes.
