This beautiful classic structure opened in 1910 as the Shubert Theater. Known for many years as the World Theater, it was renamed in 1994 after favorite local son, famous writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. Garrison Keillor, modern day's favorite local son, hosts the Public Radio International program "A Prairie Home Companion" live from the Fitzgerald on Saturdays at 5p (when he is not taking his show on the road). This is a good spot to watch any type of show, with an intimate feel gained from the three tiers of seating that afford everyone great sightlines. The acoustics are wonderful. Many famous names ply this venue, from comedians to musicians. One drawback is the tiny narrow lobby that tends to get very crowded.
