Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts

Gallatin Students perform in "The Trial" in the Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts.

The 108-seat Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts is used for a wide variety of events, including dramatic productions, dance performances, readings and film presentations. The theater space can also be used in conjunction with the adjoining gallery space to create a 285-seat multipurpose auditorium that accommodates a variety of larger-scale gatherings and signature School events, such as student orientations and the Albert Gallatin Lectures. The theater has a unique, custom-made retractable seating system that is on the cutting edge of theater design technologies, and the theater and the gallery space are separated by a retractable wall that can move to accommodate events of varying audience size. The gallery space is an area in which student and faculty artwork is displayed throughout the year.
