Musical and theatrical performances by local groups and celebrities alike fill the schedule at this 387-seat theater at Guild Hall. The 1931 jewel-box proscenium stage, with an octagonal white and blue striped tent-like ceiling that sweeps up to a chandelier of glass balloons, makes the theater is as spectacular as the shows offered here. It also hosts myriad lectures, film festivals, and family and children's workshops and events. From October through April, Live from the Met screenings bring New York City to the East End. The theater museum houses permanent art collections and hosts temporary exhibits.
