The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is opening next year and I'm really excited for this project, which has actually been underway for quite a while. Though my visits to the theater are few and far between, I love the theater, and can't wait for this amazing place to open! I'm not saying the Bob Carr is bad... but this will be so much better and grander :cheers:



The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, opening in the fall of 2014, is located in the heart of downtown Orlando.

Including two grand performance theaters, a community theater, outdoor performance plaza, and educational programming space, the performing arts center is not just a building; it is an education and creative hub, city builder and community family room. The Center will propel exposure, interaction, and participation for every walk of life; from those in the far reaches of Central Florida, to those just blocks way.

As someone who performs and sees a lot of shows around Tampa and Orlando, i'm pretty excited for this. Looks like it will be beautiful. Seems like it could be Orlando's equivalent to the Straz Center in Tampa. The main theater has that same grand feel to it.
