Can't get enough Garrison Keillor? Now you can get more. Prairie Home Productions announced today that Keillor will do three variety shows this fall at the Fitzgerald Theater. They will not be aired on radio. In each case, "The Rhubarb Show" will follow that Saturday's broadcast of "A Prairie Home Companion."
The "Rhubarb," described as a "a club version" of the radio gig, will feature guests from that night's "Prairie Home" broadcast and local talent. Sound effects guy Fred Newman and magician Bill Arnold (one of the creators of "Triple Espresso") will be Keillor's regulars.
Musical guests will include Chic Gamine and Katy Vernon (Sept. 21); songwriter Dan Penn, Molly Maher and her Disbelievers (Sept. 28); Pokey LaFarge and the Cactus Blossoms (Oct. 5).
Tickets ($5-$40) go on sale Aug. 15 at Ticketmaster, or the Fitzgerald box office. Show time for all three dates is 9 p.m.
