Fodor's Review

Pause as you enter this neo-Moorish building, built in 1923 for the Shriners (cousins of the Freemasons), and admire the beautifully ornate tile work that plasters the lobby. City Center's 2,200-seat main stage is perfectly suited for dance and special theatrical events. The very popular Encores! series, held in spring, revisits musicals of the past in a concert format—an event that has led to shows returning to Broadway. Tickets for City Center's annual Fall for Dance festival sell out quickly.
