Mixing legendary blues with political commentary, ballet with myth busting genius and big recognizable names with big – less mainstream, but just as brilliant – names… the 20th Season of Park City Institute’s brand of performance has arrived. In keeping with its mission to entertain, educate and illuminate, PCI delivers a line-up of world-renowned musicians, actors, dancers, authors, thinkers and doers. There are throwbacks to The Eccles Center’s grand opening first season. There are Grammy winners and acclaimed traditional entertainers. And there are pioneers, who would never have fit into the performing arts mold of yesterday.
The 2016-2017 Eccles Center Season begins on December 3 with a leap into the heart of American political critiques. Pulitzer prize-winning New York Times columnist and former White House correspondent Maureen Dowd will be joined by Carl Hulse, a congressional correspondent for the New York Times. Together, they present a kind of yin and yang of our nation’s political/social landscape – as well as an insider take on politicians and clowns and other creatures indigenous to Washington, D.C.
Tickets and Season Punch Cards are now available. Tickets may be purchased by calling 435-655-3114, online at www.parkcity.institute or at the box office, which is located within The Eccles Center (1750 Kearns Blvd., Park City).
