Kravis Center for Performing Arts - West Palm, FL

Kravis Center for the Performing Arts was built through the efforts of the West Palm Beach locals, who longed for a center where they could showcase their work and host large-scale concerts and theatrical productions. That dream became a reality in 1992, when the complex opened with a free weeklong celebration that showcased local artists.

The 2,195-seat Dreyfoos Hall is the main venue of the center and plays host to ballets, concerts, operas, comedy acts and Broadway shows. Dreyfoos Hall is known for its superior acoustics and ornate aesthetics, providing the audience a spectacular theater experience. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts also houses two smaller venues, Helen K. Persson Hall and Rinker Playhouse, along with the Michael and Andrew Gosman Amphitheatre, the complex’s only outdoor venue.

Since its grand opening, the Kravis Center has hosted hundreds of shows, including Broadway hits such as The Phantom of the Opera, Annie, Pippin and The Sound of Music. Recent music performances include the likes of Tony Bennett, Michael Bolton, Kenny Rogers, Diana Ross, trumpeter Chris Botti and violinist Itzhak Perlman.

The doors open 90 minutes prior to the start of the show, and guests are encouraged to come early to allow time for a security check. Once inside, guests can wander around its beautiful spacious lobby, enjoy light meals and beverages at the Bistro Teatro before the show, or purchase souvenirs and gift items at the Kravis Center Gallery and Gift Shop.
