National news icon Anderson Cooper will travel to North Carolina this September. The CNN anchor and Emmy winner, who recently came out as gay, brings his â€śAnderson Cooperâ€™s 360Â° World Viewâ€ť to the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) on Friday, Sept. 21.
â€śWorld Viewâ€ť is based on CNNâ€™s program, â€śAnderson Cooperâ€™s 360Â°.â€ť The stage show takes the format of a 45-minute lecture followed by a 45-minute Q&A session.
â€śFans love special events like this at DPAC as past speakers like David Sedaris, Garrison Keillor, Bill Oâ€™Reilly, Ira Glass and Anthony Bourdain have been some of our most talked about presentations since opening,â€ť Bob Klaus, DPAC general manager, said in a release. â€śTo have an international news figure on our stage brings a whole new dimension to the theater. And as always, our state-of-the-art sound, video and sightlines will ensure guests an intimate experience unmatched by any other theater in the region.â€ť
