Executive Director Brett Batterson makes New City's "Players" list (again)

Image from
Annually, New City publishes its list of The Players: The 50 people who really perform in Chicago. We're proud to see our own Executive Director, Brett Batterson on the list at number 14. While we'll leave it to you to read the whole article, here's a snippet of what New City said about Brett:
"Not only does his artistic soul lead him to edgier programming decisions, like bringing in Batsheva, Complexions and Nederlands Dans Theater—which absolutely blew away everyone who saw it—but he also produces. Under his watch, Auditorium has developed “Too Hot to Handel: The Jazz-Gospel Messiah” into an annual franchise, he brought opera to the Auditorium for the first time in sixty-five years with “Margaret Garner” in 2008 and this year he’s producing the upcoming Miles Davis Festival, which includes a major dance element through a commissioned world premiere from River North Chicago Dance."
Congrats to Brett from the whole team!
