The Guthrie Theater was founded in 1963 with an aim to promote theater that was an alternative to the largely commercial Broadway. Ever since that first Hamlet was staged, directed by founder Sir Tyrone Guthrie, the theater has grown from strength to strength. The Guthrie Theater's mission remains the same but what started off as four productions and a skeletal staff is now a complex that includes three stages. One doesn't have to be a ticket holder to visit the building and its cafe or lounge. There are also visitor tours, both with a guide and self guided audio tours.
