Lehman Center for the Performing Arts
Lehman Center for the Performing Arts' 2,310-seat Concert Hall is the borough's premier performance space. Critics have called it "acoustically perfect." With a modern 2,400-square foot stage and a hydraulic orchestra pit, the Center presents outstanding classical, popular, and folk/ethnic dance, music, and theatre companies from around the world. Special, culturally diverse community celebrations enhance the Center's offerings. The Center has also served as the site of numerous public programs and debates of national interest. Lehman students are offered discounted tickets for most events, as well as opportunities to work as ushers and apprentice stagehands. Examples of artists who have recently performed at the Center include El Gran Combo, Virsky Ukrainian National Dance Company, Smokey Robinson, Jimmy Cliff, Trinity Irish Dance Company, Nickelodeon's Blues Clues Live, and the gospel musical "Your Arms Too Short to Box With God."
