This state-of-the-art building includes two performance spaces—the 463-seat Elizabeth Ross Johnson Theater and the 252-seat Arthur Laurents Theater—that provide expanded venues for Mason Gross student and faculty artists to showcase their work, as well as rehearsal studios and elegant space for special events.
