How lucky are we to have this great theater on our doorstep ? I have a mental list of the best 20 productions I have seen out of 3,000 plus (you have to be pretty old, guys). At least half of them are at the Guthrie.

Great article! My wife and I are full-season subscribers -- have been for years. The Guthrie is one of the reasons we aren't snowbirds; we don't want to miss any of the productions. Now, if only the new Guthrie complex was more user friendly. But that's a another story....R. C. Shulstad

Dowling has certainly been good for the Guthrie from a business point of view, but I find him really overrated as a director.

The writers need to do a bit more research. By the time Livui arrived, Garland had already directed CAMILLE.
