Stage manager and alumnus Morgan Holbrook hit another peak in his successful Broadway career in 2019, when The Boys in the Band—starring Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, and Andrew Rannells—nabbed the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play. His many credits include The Ferryman with Dean Ashton and Paddy Considine, Six Degrees of Separation featuring Alison Janney and John Benjamin Hickey, and The Cherry Orchard with leads Diane Lane and Joel Grey.
Reaching a milestone calls for an appropriate celebration, and Krannert Center didn't hold back when the big 5-0 rolled around. Regaling returning staff members, alumni, longtime donors, and community friends were Steve Dawson and the Jupiter Quartet.
How big is it? Krannert Center covers two square blocks and can host more than 4000 people in a single night of singing, playing, dancing, eating, performing, working, and laughing.
