BEST Celebration of the decade: Krannert Center for the Performing Arts’ 50th Anniversary

From our BEST Arts of the decade feature:

Krannert Center for the Performing Arts knows how to put the golden in golden anniversary: so many amazing performances to celebrate, as well as the teams of people behind the scenes who have helped make it all possible. I was fortunate to celebrate the big night right there in the Krannert lobby. I toasted the signature glittery golden Champagne cocktail with friends old and new. I enjoyed the sounds of the Jupiter Quartet and the inspiring words of Mike Ross, Krannert’s visionary director. But the party did not end there. The 2019-2020 anniversary season has been a continued source of joy and inspiration. From dance to theatre to music, this celebration has been both transformative and transcendent. Remaining true to the spirit of its founding donors, Krannert Center for the Performing continues to bring us together to celebrate what is best in us. It provides a welcoming space in a time of deep divisiveness. It holds a space for wonder, learning, and healing. I hope you are as excited as I am to experience the rest of the celebration.
