Marx Theatre

The Robert S. Marx Theatre — which opened on July 18, 1968, with a production of Camino Real by Tennessee Williams — houses the larger of the Playhouse's two performing stages. Yet, with a seating capacity of just 626, you're never farther than 13 rows from the stage!

Thompson Shelterhouse

The Thompson Shelterhouse is the smaller of the Playhouse's two performing stages. The intimate theatre seats just 225 people, so no one is farther than seven rows from the stage. The original Playhouse was confined to this park shelterhouse, which had been scheduled for demolition. Instead, the building was converted to a theatre where, on Oct. 10, 1960, Meyer Levin's Compulsion celebrated the opening night of both play and Playhouse.
