NPR fans rejoice. Garrison Keillor is bringing his "Prairie Home Companion" to Danbury so that you can hear him tell his tales from Lake Wobegon live, hear some good folk music and chuckle at the fake advertisements. He's been doing the show on and off since 1974, and there aren't many live radio variety shows in existence anymore. ("Mountain Stage" is another good one.) See Keillor, under the moon, in a gazebo, at the Ives Concert Park, the best venue you're going to see the show outside of its home base at the Fitzgerald Theatre in St. Paul, Minnesota.
