Vivian Beaumont Theater — New York, NY


The Vivian Beaumont Theater opened in 1965 and has been through several managements and periods of inactivity in following years. In 1985, Lincoln Center Theater acquired the venue and it has been under its operations ever since under the direction of André Bishop and Bernard Gersten.

In 1996 the theater underwent an $8 million renovation that improved its acoustics, increased handicap access and upgraded the building’s infrastructure.
