About the Venue:
Set on top of the former Tivoli Theatre's balcony, the new theater house design uses the existing balcony's stepped concrete for its seating. The vibrant design echoes the vitality of the theater company and the Latino creative spirit. A curved wall for art dominates the lobby, while the concessions bar creates a focal counterpoint within the space.
