About the venue: The Fitzgerald Theater was purchased in 1981 to provide a home base for A Prairie Home Companion. The theater was built in 1910 as a Shubert vaudeville house and in 1933 was renamed the World Theater to reflect its international film programming. As the 100th birthday of F. Scott Fitzgerald approached, Garrison Keillor led an effort to commemorate Fitzgerald's life which included renaming the theater in his honor in 1994. Visit the Fitzgerald Theater Web site.

Garrison describes the history of The Fitzgerald Theater:

Old Sweet Songs: A Prairie Home Companion 1974-1976
