Garrison Keillor picks 'Rhubarb' as new show at Fitzgerald


"A Prairie Home Companion" host and star Garrison Keillor is getting ready to unveil a new show at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, the Pioneer Press reports.

Titled "The Rhubarb Show," the production is a new variety show that unlike "APHC," will not be broadcast on radio.

There will be a familiar feel to the show, however. "Rhubarb" is being described as "a club version of the radio show," and will feature Keillor, sound effects man Fred Newman, Mighty Wurlitzer theater organ player Karl Eilers and magician Bill Arnold.

The show will go onstage after the broadcast of "APHC" at 9 p.m. on Sept. 21, Sept. 28 and Oct. 5.

Tickets range from $10 to $40 and will go on sale Thursday.

The upcoming season for "APHC" is already sold out.
