The Fitzgerald Theatre is much more in use today than it was just a few decades ago. Before restoration, the Fitzgerald Theatre had falled on hard times. Due to lack of interest in St. Paul theater in the 1970s, along with competition from other Twin Cities theater venues, the Fitzgerald Theatre was closed for several years. Minnesota Public Radio decided to invest in the Fitzgerald Theatre and spent 6 years restoring the facility to its original grandeur. Again, the biggest show that took place on the Fitzgerald Theatre's stages was "The Prairie Home Companion", which was turned into a blockbuster movie as recently as 2006.
The Fitzgerald Theatre's history was originally inspired by entertainment-industry icons Lee and J. J. Shubert. The Shubert brothers named the facility the Sam S. Shubert Theater in honor of their brother who had passed away. The Shubert brothers modeled the Sam S. Shubert Theater on New York's Maxine Elliot Theater as its model.
