Neighborhood: Campus

Built at the turn of the 20th Century, this theater has played host not only to the University's graduation ceremonies, but has also been one of the premier venues in the city for live shows, and one of the only under the open sky. Designed like a classical Greek amphitheater with its tiered concrete seating and immense stage, it seats 8,000, every seat is a good one, and the acoustics are fantastic. Since it is outdoors, be sure to bring a coat or sweater as it gets chilly even during the summer, and a blanket if you want to sit on the grass before the stage. Call to have a schedule sent to you. Prices depend on the show.
