    University of St. Thomas Annual Lee Lecture:  Aaron Krohn

    New York actor and University of St. Thomas alumnus Aaron Krohn (pictured) will speak about life as an artist at the University of St. Thomas Annual Lee Lecture, 7:30 p.m. Monday, November 22, in UST-Jones Hall.

    A Houston native, Krohn grew up in the theatre, raised and inspired by his actor parents, Charles and Chesley Krohn. He was a theatre major at the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA) and received his undergraduate degree in philosophy from the University of St. Thomas. After working at The Alley Theatre and playing lead guitar in a rock band (elevator Up), he moved to San Diego for his Master of Fine Arts in acting from The Old Globe Theatre Professional Actor Training Program.

    Krohn moved to New York City in 2000 and began his Broadway career in Tom Stoppard's The Invention of Love, directed by Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien. Since then Krohn has worked steadily in New York City, appearing in many Broadway productions, including Henry IV (with Kevin Kline and Ethan Hawke), Julius Caesar (with Denzel Washington), the Tony Award winning trilogy The Coast of Utopia (with Billy Crudup, Ethan Hawke, Jennifer Ehle, Amy Irving, Richard Easton and Martha Plimpton), and The Farnsworth Invention (with Hank Azaria and Jimmi Simpson).

    He recently finished work on his second year of The Bridge Project, a half-English, half-American multi continental three-year theatre project, featuring five classic plays directed by Sam Mendes, produced by Kevin Spacey and performed in Asia, Europe, New Zealand, London and New York.

    In 1979, colleagues and friends of the late Rev. Edward G. Lee, CSB, established the Lee Lecture to bring outstanding figures from the arts and humanities to UST. The lecture series has featured such distinguished speakers as Edward Albee, Larry McMurtry, Gwendolyn Brooks, Paul Elie and Paul Mariani.
