Cultural campus brings Broadway, jazz, and other performing arts to downtown Las Vegas.
The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, a centerpiece of Las Vegas’ reemerging downtown and reenergized dedication to cultural offerings in the city, is set to open March 10 following more than a decade of conceptualization, design, and construction.
The world-class complex includes the 2,050-seat Reynolds Hall, 258-seat Cabaret Jazz overlooking 1.7-acre Symphony Park, 250-seat Troesh Studio Theater, and the iconic 17-story Carillon bell tower.
Performances ranging from Broadway productions to local and national musical and dance talent—including the Las Vegas Philharmonic, Las Vegas Symphony Orchestra, and Nevada Ballet Theatre—combine for a rich and diverse schedule of events throughout 2012.
The center is expected to be the first Silver LEED-certified performing arts venue of its size in the country. Additionally, the campus will be the new location of the Discovery Children’s Museum later this year.
The Smith Center for the Performing Arts is proud to announce the Broadway Las Vegas series as part of its inaugural season. The series is priced at $99, $139, $229, and $309 for all four shows, depending on seating preference. Prices include sales tax and handling fees.
