Celebrities Endorse the Raue Center for the Arts

Joan Rivers, Melissa Manchester, and Kurt Bestor share their "Wow" experiences at the Raue Center for the Arts in Crystal Lake.


It's not every day Emmy, Grammy, Tony and Academy-award winning artists appear in Crystal Lake.

But, thanks to the Raue Center for the Arts, such artists do turn up every now and then throughout the performance season at the historic theater located at 26 N. Williams Street in downtown Crystal Lake.

The Raue Center has just released a video featuring celebrities like comedian Joan Rivers; Grammy winner, singer-songwriter Melissa Manchester; and Emmy-award winning composer Kurt Bestor sharing their personal impressions of the Raue.

"I love the Raue Center," Rivers says in the video. "It should be called the 'Wow' center!"

The Raue Center has been bringing quality entertainment to McHenry County for the past 11 years. Information about upcoming performances and tickets is available at the Raue Center webpage, the Raue Center Box Office at 26 N. Williams St., or by calling 815-356-9212.
