Vivian Beaumont Theatre


The Vivian Beaumont Theater, designed by architect Eero Saarinen, opened on October 21, 1965. Initially home to the Repertory Theater of Lincoln Center until its closure in 1973, it later hosted Joseph Papp’s New York Shakespeare Festival from 1973 to 1977. The theater underwent periods of external rentals and limited use until 1985 when Lincoln Center Theater took over management. Under Lincoln Center Theater, led by figures like Gregory Mosher, Bernard Gersten, Linda LeRoy Janklow, and Andre Bishop, it has become the largest not-for-profit theater in the U.S., producing a diverse year-round program across the Beaumont and other NYC venues.
