Filming at the Fitzgerald Theater!

Two-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep teamed up with teen star Lindsay Lohan and Oscar nominee Woody Harrelson to film a movie about Garrison Keillor 's A Prairie Home Companion radio show. Directed by Robert Altman, actors John C. Riley, Kevin Kline, Lily Tomlin, and Tommy Lee Jones joined the cast, along with musicians Peter Ostroushko, Butch Thompson, Robin and Linda Williams, Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and others. Garrison Keillor is the screenwriter of the film and also one of its principal actors.

Veteran character actor L.Q. Jones, who was asked to be a singer in the movie, says, " the show is ... warm and comfortable like a quilt."
