The Broad Stage
Unlike any performance space in the country, the Eli and Edythe BroadStage at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center is sublimely intimate with just over 500 seats and strikingly grand at the same time–allowing eye contact with artists from the boxes to the back row–forging a new kind of artist and audience experience in Los Angeles. Boasting one of the city’s largest proscenium stages, The Broad Stage offers theatre, dance, film, opera, jazz, world music, musicals, symphony and chamber orchestras, family programming and more.
In addition to BroadStage, The Edye, our 100-seat black box theater, presents new, developing and innovative work in theatre, music and dance, as well as offerings from our other genres. Featuring younger, emerging artists, chamber pieces and plays, programming at The Edye reflects the dynamic nature of the space and allows for the latest, most exciting artists to be booked on short notice.
