    A treasure trove of a book

    The Guthrie Theater: Images, History, And Inside Stories is a simply fabulous, 240-page collection of memories, anecdotes, history, and breathtaking full page photos of past productions at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. Founded in 1963 with world famous director Tyrone Guthrie at the helm, Guthrie theater productions have continued to amaze and astound the theater audiences of Minnesota ever since. Author Peg Guilfoyle was Guthrie's stage manager and production manager for almost ten years, and she has had access to the Guthrie archives through research and collaboration with Sheila Livingston, executive editor of the Guthrie. The result is a vivid tapestry of threads drawn from many of the fabulous productions and casts, crews, and companies at the Guthrie over the past forty plus years. The book comes at a turning point in the Guthrie's fabled history, for the theater has relocated and rebuilt at a new location on the Mississippi, due to growth and an excess of 'riches' in the form of production needs. Due to its miraculous and star-studded history, the Guthrie has an intensely loyal following. It is only natural that the past be celebrated, not mourned, and that the fresh beginning represented by the new theater be blessed by such a tribute as this book of wondrous details emerging from its past. As an aside, I was a high school graduate in Monticello, Minnesota in 1963 when the Guthrie first opened. My mother took me to every production, proudly. I remember the critics' remarks about classic theater in Minneapolis needing to have a 'baseball' mentality to succeed. The Guthrie stunned them all into submission. The first production of 'Hamlet,' with Zoe Caldwell, George Grizzard, Hume Cronyn, Jessica Tandy, and Sir Tyrone himself directing, all were a fabulous experience in genuine live, classic theater in a beautiful modern setting. I believe it is fair to say they found the Minnesota audiences to be warm, welcoming, appreciative, and hungry for culture. For all who love theater and especially for hose who have been lucky enough to have any experience at all with the Guthrie, The Guthrie Theater is a treasure trove of a book and a welcome addition to personal and academic library Theatre History collections.
