Keillor a success

Quite an enjoyable experience: that would be how I would sum it up. You really got the feeling you were just about in the Fitzgerald Theater while watching. In fact it was difficult to not want to applaud at the end of musical numbers and skits. Technically billed as a high definition experience, I would say it looked more like mid-definition to me; the whites just bright enough and most detail lost in the shadows and blacks. The sound and mics were very well done; the whole show well mixed. How often would one return? It seems likely this would be a once in a great while experience at least to see Garrison Keillor again, but having said that, it does whet my appetite to see other "live" concerts. I guess opera is next!

A Prairie Home Companion

Loved it! The variety of music, stories, sound effects, etc. kept it all interesting and fun. And Evis Costello was a great guest - especially "dying for - art!" This kind of show is a lost art that we don't even realize we're missing. Anyone growing up in small towns or communities in America can relate to this show.

My husband and I have prairie roots... mine from growing up in Winterpeg Canada and his from a stint in the Twin Cities on the Marine papa plan, so we both get the dark, cold Mid-Western humor. Besides- we've both been to those covered dish fests at the local church. Funny that we met after escapting to Sunny California.... The movie is quite good and features an amazing musical cast. Who knew we'd get to see Elvis Costello sing gospel and play a woman-obsessed cruise salesman? The Steele sisters were [BLOCKED WEBSITE]plete treat! Glad to see standards like Guy Noir and the sponsor commercials were included and am still laughing at the visual of the home instruction signs on shirt cardboard from the news from Lake Wobegon. How did you know my Uncle made those for my Aunt on all the mechanicals in the basement? Kudos also to being so good at filming their award-winning sound effects team. They rocked! So glad we made this a priority to attend.
