St. Paul is proud to call the Fitzgerald Theater its oldest stage in the city where live performances can still be seen. The Fitzgerald Theater has had quite a history since it was built in 1910 and is currently owned by Minnesota Public Radio. Originally, the theater was a tribute to Lee and J.J. Shubert's brother Sam. It was in 1994, after the theater had gone through a lengthy restoration process, that it was named for literary legend F. Scott Fitzgerald, who was originally from the city of St. Paul. Since then the theater still thrives with a variety of performances from plays to musical concerts and was even a set for the movie A Prairie Home Companion. The history of St. Paul as a city began here with the construction of this theater.
