We were lucky enough to enjoy the Magnetic Fields 50 Memoirs two night show at the Fitzgerald. It was an amazing night. Beautiful venue with great sound. My husband and I loved the place and the friendly staff. Everyone that worked there was extremely friendly. We would love to go back to see another show if possible.

Saw the opening show of the Prairie Home Companion 2016 and it was amazing. The acoustics were perfect and it was easy to park next door. You can't help but feel nostalgic for a bygone era when you walk in the theater. Beautifully decorated and super friendly staff! Can't wait to go back!

The Fitzgerald Theater is probably the most famous for being the home to "Prairie Home Companion" for many years. It is so cute: it even has the private little boxes overlooking the stage. Our family has enjoyed many plays, musical performances, and of course PHC radio shows here. It is a showpiece and treasure of St. Paul!

The torch has been passed to the younger generation. The show will do fine. Chris Thile has what it takes to host the show. There are a few changes. It's live radio people! Very unusual. It will not disappoint.

It is a lovely venue. We've been here many times. The staff is nice and helpful. The building is gorgeous and the theater itself is a great experience. The show the other night was hideous and we actually walked out but hey, not the Fitz' fault.

I had purchased the book which was highlighted in this presentation previously, so when my daughter made me aware of this program I had to attend. I was not disappointed in any way. His not only photographing the animals but helping them and the humans close to them is much admired.

Fitzgerald's Theater is a 1,000-seat theater and a huge broadcast studio, with airwaves reaching millions of people tuned in to "A Prairie Home Companion." The theater is so beautiful and comfortable. I witnessed a performance by an amazing local band. Everything was perfect. The interior is highly elegant and resemble opera houses of the turn of the century era.The theater... More

It was my good fortune to attend one of the radio broadcasts of Garrison Keillor. It was wonderful to watch after spending so many years listening to his radio show. My husband and I were thoroughly entertained. there is a refreshment counter that offers adult beverages, soft drinks and movie style candy. We were able to purchase Powdermilk Biscuit hats... More
