Original Guthrie Venue to Close May 7

News   Original Guthrie Venue to Close May 7
When the curtain comes down May 7 on the Guthrie Theater's current production of Hamlet — helmed by Guthrie Artistic Director Joe Dowling — it will mark the final performance the Minneapolis-based theatre company will play in its original stage space.

The famed theatre company, as previously reported, will reopen at its new $125 million complex with F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. Directed by David Esbjornson, the Jazz Age work will run July 15-Sept. 10. The original Guthrie Theatre was founded in the early sixties by Sir Tyrone Guthrie, who hoped to create a theatre "with a resident acting company that would perform the classics in rotating repertory with the highest professional standards." The theatre also opened with a production of Hamlet — directed by Guthrie — on May 7, 1963.

The new three-theatre Guthrie space is located in the Mills District on the banks of the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis. For more information visit www.guthrietheater.org.
