Garrison Keillor at MSU Riley Center

Thursday, September 28, 2017 - 7:30 pm

Tall and bespectacled, Garrison Keillor stands alone on stage, simply talking. To keep an audience rapt, he needs no co-stars, no costumes, no props, just his voice. That soft-around-the-edges baritone caresses each word as he tells his deceptively simple tales. His stage shows resemble the "News from Lake Wobegon" monologues from his beloved public-radio show, "A Prairie Home Companion," from which he retired last year. Keillor's stories unfold at a relaxed pace, mixing small-town vignettes, sharply observed commentaries about contemporary life, and even a little singing now and then. Like the children of Lake Wobegon, it's all very much above average. Tickets may be purchased online, by phone or in person at the MSU Riley Center Box Office.
