Krista is the Asst. Program Director for the Prague Summer Program - a study abroad program for writers. Originally from Louisville, KY, Krista made her Civic debut in Steel Magnolias. Gerda passed away in Terezin, also where Arnost Lustig (a survivor of Auschwitz) was deported. He later called the railroad tracks he was forced to help build, His families cemetery. Arnost, I dedicate this performance in your honor.
