Studio Theatre, Club-Style


$10-60

Where did you get your start? It’s a question often asked of Krannert Center’s incredible array of artists, including Julie and Nathan Gunn. For Julie Jordan Gunn, things began in part in Drytown, California, a gold-mining-town-turned-summer-theatre-destination where, as Julie was growing up, the Jordan family would join the Claypipers performance troupe to present comedic melodramas and a special Labor Day children’s showcase featuring none other than Julie and her two younger brothers. Things built from there for Julie—and the story eventually included Nathan, too. Now the Gunns invite you to pull up a chair for a charming living-room style cabaret, complete with a small band and filled with their own family stories; friends old and new singing and playing songs old and new (including numbers by the witty and wise Susan Werner); and special guests who will offer a unique window into where great artists come from.

 

Club-style performances offer first-come, first-served seating at tables of four in the Studio Theatre. Full bar service with snacks is available during the performance.
