On to Wisconsin - and Minneapolis

I'm at Logan Airport in Boston waiting for my flight to Milwaukee and from there, it's just a short hop to the Twin Cities.

I don't have a lot of experience with the Midwest. I spent a day in Columbus, Ohio, for a job interview. Another time, I traveled to Pontiac, Michigan, for a weekend with a busload of high school marching band members and their parents. And I changed planes once at O'Hare Airport in Chicago. That's about it.

So, I'm looking forward to soaking up the sights and sounds of Minneapolis-St. Paul. Tomorrow afternoon, I'll be at the Guthrie Theater for the musical Little House on the Prairie. Look for my review next week. The Guthrie, which overlooks the Mississippi River, is supposed to be a stunning building, and I can't wait to see it.

But most of all, I'm excited about spending some time with dear friends. Good friends, a new musical and the adventure of traveling to a new place and meeting new people. What could be better!

The Guthrie is where I saw my first "Tempest." The old Guthrie, but still. Happy travels!

My friend lives in Minneapolis (though she's now going to school in NY), and she adores the Guthrie. Unfortunately, when I visited her, I didn't get a chance to see it.

Enjoy the show! I loved the books when I was younger.

Are you sure it's not "Little House on The Prairie Home Companion?"

Can't wait to hear all about your trip! I've only been to Minneapolis once but I did see a show when I was there... Not sure if it was the Guthrie though.

Looking forward to your LITTLE HOUSE review, too! :)

Thanks everyone! I had a great time in Minneapolis and the Guthrie is a beautiful place to see a show. I'm working on my Little House review. I should have it ready in a couple of days.
