Stage Sensations

The Regional Theatre Tony Award-winning Guthrie Theater boasts a stunning modern space (open to the public), which took the Best Cultural Space award from Travel + Leisure in 2007 and helped earned Jean Nouvel the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2008. With three stages, there’s always something new behind the curtain at the Guthrie. This month, the theater serves up great variety, starting with Shakespeare’s beloved romance Much Ado About Nothing, starring Irish actress Dearbhla Molloy as Beatrice (through Nov. 5). Next comes Seamus Heaney’s The Burial at Thebes, an adaptation of Sophocoles’ Antigone (through Nov. 6). Finally, don’t miss the hilarity of Charley’s Aunt, an entertaining farce that puts Guthrie favorite John Skelley in drag in order to serve the title role as chaperone to two young couples (opens Nov. 26).
