A Prairie Home Companion
- Wednesday, April 16, 2014 7:00 p.m.
Meryl Streep and Lily Tomlin star as the Johnson Sisters, Yolanda and Rhonda, a country duet act that has survived the county-fair circuit, and Lindsay Lohan plays Meryl'’s daughter, Lola, who gets her big chance to sing on the show and then forgets the words.
Kevin Kline is Guy Noir, a private eye down on his luck who works as the shows security guard, and Woody Harrelson and John C. Reilly are Dusty and Lefty, the Old Trailhands, a singing cowboy act. Add Virginia Madsen as an angel, Tommy Lee Jones as the Axeman, Maya Rudolph as a pregnant stagehand and Keillor in the role of hangdog emcee, and you have a playful story set on a rainy Saturday night in St. Paul, Minnesota, where fans file into the Fitzgerald Theater to see “A Prairie Home Companion,” a staple of radio station WLT, not knowing that WLT has been sold to a Texas conglomerate and that tonight’s broadcast will be the show's last.
Meryl Streep is scheduled to be present. Tickets become available on Monday, March 3. There is a limit of two tickets per person.
