Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Eleanor Roosevelt, among others. The hall was renovated in 1985 and named in honor of the university’s 100th anniversary and then became the venue for UA Presents. In 2010 the first of the Broadway in Tucson series, Wicked, was held here and the partnership between the two organizations began.
