The Norshor Theater has given the green light to former controversial MPR radio host Garrison Keillor to perform on stage at the theatre on April 16. The Norshor pulled their initial social media posts about the show off Facebook and their web page due to some negative backlash. The negative comments made were based on past sexual misconduct allegations from a former co-worker on his radio show.

The NorShor Theatre board released the following statement to FOX21: “The NorShor Theatre is a public venue available for rental by promoters and booking companies.  We have an obligation to allow rental to a variety of entertainers and musicians to offer the community choice and to support the continued operations of this valuable community asset.”

Keillor is best known for creating "A Prairie Home Companion" set in the fictional Minnesota town of Wobegon which was the subject of many of his books. Keillor was on MPR live each week for 40 years. For more information on the show or to purchase tickets click here.
