ABOUT THE MILWAUKEE THEATRE
Welcome to the Milwaukee Theatre, Milwaukee and Wisconsin’s largest and most elegant destination theater, home to an extensive calendar of concerts, Broadway musicals, family shows and assemblies of all kinds, and inheritor of a century-long legacy as a center of Milwaukee civic and cultural life.
In 2001, the Wisconsin Center District committed itself to completely transform the 1909 “Milwaukee Auditorium” into a modern, over 4,000 seat assembly, concert and theatrical venue; after a two-year, multi- million dollar project, the new Milwaukee Theatre opened on November 7, 2003. The project converted the Auditorium’s flat-floored, U-shaped arena to a more spectator-friendly, 4,087-seat theater with two sloped tiers of seats offering superior sight lines, luxury and comfort. Built-in flexibility can reduce the space to a more intimate setting for 2,500 people.
The Milwaukee Theatre is located at 500 W. Kilbourn Avenue, near the corner of 6th & Kilbourn
