A space designed to awe audiences and inspire performers.
The Queen Elizabeth Theatre is named for its most famous patron, Queen Elizabeth II, who attended a concert here when the theatre opened in July 1959.
The auditorium's broad columns, dramatic crimson seating, and textured finishes create an ambiance that is both contemporary and cozy. The atrium's sweeping staircases, fairy-like chandeliers, and reflective surfaces add a playfully dramatic feel – a perfect complement to the range of productions staged here.
The theatre’s three salons can host 20 to 220 people, for conferences, receptions and other events.
The elevator at Queen Elizabeth Theatre will be undergoing maintenance beginning Tuesday, July 25 for approximately 8 weeks. The mezzanine and balcony levels will not be accessible to patrons in wheelchairs at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Regularly playing host to acclaimed opera and musical performances, as well as Broadway shows and other amusements, the Queen Elizabeth Theatre also features a locally curated art gallery exhibiting works by emerging artists.
