Mary Grisolano

Sr. resident general manager | Blue Man Group

We say Illinois, Mary Grisolano says ... Krannert.

“As a theatre major, almost all of my memories surround Krannert,” the Blue Man Group’s senior resident general manager says from Las Vegas.

“I worked in theatre for almost 18 years since leaving Illinois. The facility, shop, rehearsal rooms, the amphitheater — Krannert is simply wonderful.

“Also, professor Robert Graves was still a theatre history prof when I was there and he will forever be the quintessential intellectual.”
