A Midsummer Night's Dream

Wurtele Thrust Stage

Until March 29, 2015

A Midsummer Night's Dream is Shakespeare's most riotously fun and magical pieces. In his final season at the helm, The Guthrie's Artistic Director Joe Dowling stages it for the third and final time, with a bold and vibrant re-imagining.

Mr. Burns

Mcguire Proscenium Stage

March 31-May 10, 2015

When civilization falls in light of a giant, worldwide nuclear meltdown, a group of survivors find themselves round a camp-fire, finding solace in acting out an episode of The Simpsons. Anne Washburn's darkly comic play takes us on a thoughtful, funny journey as it examines how pop culture could go on to inform mythology.

The Crucible

Wurtele Thrust Stage

April 11-May 24, 2015

The case of the Salem witch trails is still one of the most infamous losses of innocent lives, and has gone down in history as an example of how mass hysteria can compound superstition and lead to fatal consequences. In The Crucible, Arthur Miller's seminal Tony winning contribution to the American dramatic canon, he brings the 1692 community of strong moral purists to life, and allows us to find, in the reflection, the atrocities commuted in the 1950s, in the similarly panicked climate under the shadow of McCarthyism.

Juno and the Paycock

Mcguire Proscenium Stage

May 23-June 28, 2015

Founded in 1963, Minieapolis' Guthrie Theatre has been dedicated to hosting the thought-provoking classics of the theatre tradition. Now its Proscenium Arch Theatre will see another iconic play unfold on its stage in the form of Sean O'Caseys' 'Juno and the Paycock', one of the most performed and revered plays in Ireland today.

Stage Kiss

Mcguire Proscenium Stage

July 18-August 30, 2015

Don't miss the Guthrie's production of this smart romantic comedy from Pulitzer prize nominated Sarah Ruhl. Set during a revival of a dreary 1930's play, we follow two actors, and former lovers, as their long extinguished flame is rekindled...
