Guthrie Store (Level One) Open 11 am – 5 pm
Shop a thoughtful mix of handcrafted gifts and jewelry, show-specific merchandise, play
scripts, and unique items made exclusively for the Guthrie. Take home a souvenir from your visit!
A piece of history (Levels One, Four and Five)
Enjoy a who’s who of acclaimed actors pictured in backlit photo boxes in the Wurtele Thrust and McGuire Proscenium lobbies, as well as ghostly images of past performances
printed on our walls and ceilings.
Blue Wall (Level Four Lobby)
Architect Jean Nouvel wanted to give patrons a peek into the action backstage, hence this
glass wall. Peer through it for an occasional view of our stage crew working, and see the
expansive scene shop’s entrance.
Amber Box (Level Nine)
Officially dubbed the Citizens of Minnesota Overlook, this lobby with amber windows
provides a near 360-degree view of this historic neighborhood, including the river, Gold Medal Park and the downtown skyline.
Endless Bridge (Levels Four and Five)
Perhaps the most noteworthy feature of the Guthrie is a cantilever that extends 178 feet
from the face of the building. Check out the postcard effect of the windows, directing your eyes to specific attractions in the landscape.
Jundt Terrace (Levels Four and Five)
Despite its name, the Endless Bridge does come to an end and it is magnificent. Step
outside, take a seat and enjoy one of the most spectacular views in the city. Experience a
bird’s-eye view of the falls, the birthplace of Minneapolis.
Playwrights al fresco
Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? Step outside to the Guthrie’s western exterior to view majestic photos of Tyrone Guthrie and seven playwrights whose greatest
works have graced our stages and inspired generations of theatergoers.
Take a Walk over the Stone Arch Bridge, or Climb the Hill next door in Gold Medal Park for stunning views of the Guthrie.
