Garrison Keillor launched his live weekly variety radio show, A Prairie Home Companion, in 1974. Although the show ended in 2016, its 50th anniversary is being celebrated with a tour featuring music, comedy sketches, and updates on the day-to-day life of the beloved fictional town of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota—where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average. Keillor will be joined by vocalists Christine DiGiallonardo and Heather Masse, plus the Royal Academy of Radio Actors and other acts, including the comedy skit Guy Noir, Private Eye, an address from the American Duct Tape Council, and an audience singalong.
