The Guthrie Theater was founded by Sir Tyrone Guthrie, a famous director and actor, who saw a need for classic theater to return to the U.S. Minneapolis was selected as Sir Tyrone Guthrie's ideal location because of its midwestern setting and proven acceptance of cultural, musical, and theatre arts. Under Sir Tyron Guthrie's leadership, the venue operated with a focus on the classics and high standards for actors. By 1982, the Guthrie Theatre was nationally recognized with a Tony Award.
Sir Tyrone Guthrie died in 1971 and the theater had its ups and downs over the next few decades. However, by 2006, funds were in place to give the Guthrie Theatre an extreme makeover. Jean Nouvel, an architect from France, was summoned to reconfigure the venue into something modern and beautiful. He did just that. Today, the Guthrie Theatre is recognized for its blue exterior, cantilevered bridge, and black and white portraits of legendary actors and directors around the main floor.
