Fodor's Review

Comprising more than a dozen quirky resident, emerging, and visiting troupes in six performance areas—two in the Calderwood Pavilion (Roberts, Wimberly), two black-box (Plaza) theaters, and two rehearsals halls—the massive circular brick Cyclorama, built in 1885 to house a 360-degree mural of the Battle of Gettysburg, today hosts concerts, trade events, and beer and wine festivals. The multicultural Company One, gay/lesbian Theatre Offensive, and cutting-edge (off-off-Broadway) SpeakEasy Stage Company present shows here year-round. Forty resident visual artists are presented in the spacious, white Mills Gallery. Banyan Bar + Refuge and the Beehive share this lively, diverse BCA enclave.
