Dance, drama, film and music - all have a home here. Our stages host professional performances and summer residencies, community theater, and children's troupes. Performing art spaces run the gamut from the historic opera house atmosphere at the oldest theater in New York, to a bold architectural performance space designed by Frank Gehry.
