The Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre is used by the UM School of Music Theatre & Dance performances and is a shoe-box theatre that can seat a humble number of 644 people per event. The design of the place is its highlight- the used of oak panelling that creates the ambience of yesteryears and adds to the acoustic value of the place, the "cyclorama" which is a curved wall at the back of the performing stage along with the old-world ambience that make this place a one-of-a-kind experience! Of its many star-studded performance, the pace is most remembered by the time when Eartha Kitt and Barbara Cook graced the stage in 1993 for the 100th May Festival’s Cabaret Ball!
Currently, the place is used for the atrical performances and for solo recitals but you can keep an eye out for a performance here to see the theatre at its best! Even though it does not compare to other professional spaces that have impeccable acoustics, its intimate space sure does enhance the performances.
