Michigan Radio and Olympia Entertainment welcome A Prairie Home Companion to Detroit

Public radio station Michigan Radio (91.7 FM Ann Arbor/Detroit) and Olympia Entertainment will present a live performance of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor from Detroit on Saturday, May 7, 2011 at 5:45 p.m. The celebrated radio variety show, produced by Prairie Home Productions and presented and distributed by American Public Media, will take the stage at the historic Fox Theatre for a live, national broadcast.

Tickets will go on sale through the Fox Theatre box office, through Ticketmaster (Ph: 800-745-3000), and online at this Friday, January 14 at 10:00 a.m. Ticket prices are $38.50, $58.50, and $68.50.

A Prairie Home Companion performed at the Fox Theatre last February, with Detroit soul singers Bettye LaVette and Sir Mack Rice as featured guests. That show sold out in only one week.

This year's A Prairie Home Companion show, on May 7, will feature live performances and comical skits by Keillor, the Prairie Home cast, and special guests (who have yet to be announced). Keillor will weave local humor into the show and share his signature monologue, "The News From Lake Wobegon," with Detroit audiences.
