The World Theater
March 18, 2014 |
Memories of the early years of Prairie Home include "coming to you live from the World Theater in downtown St. Paul..." Before and shortly after the renovation of that beautiful venue, it seemed like a match made in heaven, what ever happened to that relationship?
West Hartford, CT
The show still broadcasts from the theater, which was renamed the Fitzgerald Theater in 1995. We did 11 shows at the Fitz last season, are doing 11 this season, and plan to do 12 or 15 next season. We're still fond of the place, and the renovation of 1985 is holding up very well, but long ago the show ventured out to do broadcasts in other parts of the country (and a few overseas) simply because I like to travel and this was a perfect excuse.
