One of the Guthrie's smaller experimental theater spaces from 1968-1971.



In the late 1960s, Minneapolis’s Guthrie Theater became interested in producing plays outside of its main theater space, particularly smaller spaces that would allow a more intimate setting for the audience and actors.

On Dec. 29, 1967, the Guthrie opened the Guthrie Crawford-Livingston Theater at the Minnesota Arts and Science Center at 30 10th Street East in St. Paul, creating a separate St. Paul repertory season in this 500-seat theater.

At the Crawford-Livingston, the Guthrie staged productions such as “She Stoops to Conquer” and “Enrico IV” in a few short seasons, but ceased use of the space in 1971.

The Minnesota Arts and Science Center is now the location of the McNally-Smith College of Music, and the Crawford-Livingston Theatre space has been home to the History Theatre since 1978.
