A Prairie Home Companion Returns to Detroit
Michigan Radio and Olympia Entertainment will welcome America's favorite storyteller, Garrison Keillor, to Detroit on Saturday, May 30, 2015 for a special live broadcast performance of A Prairie Home Companion. The show will take place at the historic Fox Theatre in downtown Detroit.
The May 30 show will feature live performances and comedy skits by Keillor and the Prairie Home cast. Keillor will weave local humor into the show and share his signature monologue, "The News from Lake Wobegon," with Detroit audiences.
Tickets for the show will go on sale to the public beginning Saturday, February 28 at 10:00 a.m.
A native Minnesotan, Garrison Keillor began working at Minnesota Public Radio in 1969. In the summer of 1974, he hosted the first live broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion, a program now heard weekly on over 580 public radio stations by over 4 million listeners. The radio variety show regularly airs Saturdays at 6:00 PM on Michigan Radio, and is repeated at 12:00 PM on Sundays.
