Theatre Alum Tyrone Phillips Returns Home to Krannert Center
Alumnus Tyrone Phillips (BFA ‘12, Acting) returned to Krannert Center to direct The Royale for the Department of Theatre. For him, telling this story is as much about shedding light on one of America's greatest athletes as it is an act of antiracism today. We weighed in with Phillips to learn more about his process and what it's like to be back at his alma mater.
In this video interview, Phillips shares why he loves this play, how his training and opportunities as an acting major in the department of Theatre prepared him for his career, and how Krannert Center for the Performing Arts still feels like home.
