A Christmas Carol

Wurtele Thrust Stage

Until December 30, 2017

Penny pinching and bad tempered old miser Ebenezer Scrooge goes on the adventure of his life, from his past to his present and beyond and learns that the value of gold will never equal that of genuine love for his fellow men. The classic holiday tale returns to The Guthrie for the 42nd year with its beloved characters and message of compassion, love, and kindness and of course, Christmas spirit!

Mcguire Proscenium Stage

Until January 14, 2018

Clear away the dinner plates, dim the lights and join the Guthrie for Noel Coward's classic occult farce. A surefire exciting and entertaining night at the theatre, Blithe Spirit has been titillating audiences since 1941 with the story of novelist Charles Condomine and his disastrous attempt to communicate with the spirit world. As Charles learns from the eccentric clairvoyant Madame Arcati, sometimes it's better to leave the dead where they are!

Wurtele Thrust Stage

February 17 - March 24, 2018

Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel's startling play heads to the Guthrie in spring 2018, showing another side of Sholem Asch's contentious works, God of Vengeance. Centered on a Jewish couple who run a brothel, and featuring a lesbian love story, Asch's work caused a storm of controversy on its New York debut, and was eventually shuttered and the cast put on trial for obscenity. Indecent traces the lives of those creative minds involved in the work with wit and warmth.

Mcguire Proscenium Stage

March 10 - April 14, 2018

Following the success of her Broadway play Eclipsed, Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) premiered her new work Familiar in New York this March. Now headed to Minneapolis' Guthrie Theatre in 2018 and helmed by Taibi Magar, Familiar is centered on the rifts that open up in a Zimbabwean family over the course of a wedding weekend; this boisterous ensemble piece explores racial and cultural divides with panache. Take cover as explosive family fireworks interweave with questions of cultural identity for the bride-to-be.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

Wurtele Thrust Stage

April 7 - May 27, 2018

In a story that's as American as apple pie, racial prejudice collide with seemingly liberal values in the Sixties. Based on the original movie by William Rose that starred Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn and Sidney Poitier, we follow an eventful weekend spent at the affluent San Francisco home of Matt and Christina Drayton, a self-confessed progressive couple. The year is 1967 and they are awaiting the arrival of their daughter Joanna - who turns up with her boyfriend in tow, much to their surprise. But the fact that she was dating unbeknownst to them, is the least of their surprises that evening....
