Dorothy Menker Theater


The 575-seat Dorothy Menker Theater is the center’s main attraction. This proscenium theater is equipped with a mechanically controlled orchestra pit that can be raised and lowered to fit performance needs. Balcony and main floor seating is augmented by four exclusive box seat areas. The theater also features a massive fly tower for elaborate scene changes, and both first- and second-floor lobbies.
