Benedum Center Information and Schedule
The Benedum Center for the Performing Arts, a Pittsburgh Cultural Trust theater, is a center of Pittsburgh's Cultural District. The 2,800-seat theater hosts Pittsburgh Cultural Trust presentations including PNC Broadway Across America, Pittsburgh Dance Council, CD Live, Pittsburgh International Children's Theater, Cohen & Grigsby Trust Presents, and First Night Pittsburgh. The Trust also provides priority programming dates on the Benedum stage to Cultural District resident companies including Pittsburgh CLO, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, and the Pittsburgh Opera. The venue is also offered on a rental basis to promoters and community groups.
Originally built in 1903 as the Gayety Theater, The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust purchased this 1300-seat venue, then called the Fulton Theater, in 1988. The Trust renovated and reopened the Fulton Theater in 1991. The theater was renamed the Byham Theater in 1995, in recognition of a gift from William C. and Carolyn M. Byham. Today, the Byham Theater is home to a wide array of performing arts, including dance, music, theater, film, and family-friendly events held throughout the year.
Theater Square, developed by Michael Graves in collaboration with WTW Architects of Pittsburgh, is widely considered the heart of the Cultural District, animating the intersection of Seventh Street and Penn Avenue. Theater Square is home to a centralized box office, a 790-space parking garage, the Cabaret at Theater Square, the Backstage Bar, Meat and Potatoes restaurant, and the Carolyn M. Byham WQED fm89.3 Studios.
