About Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts
The mission of the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts is to be a vital cultural hub that uses unique arts events and education programming to entertain, enlighten and inspire children and adults in Los Angeles and across the nation. Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, California, the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts (aka “The Wallis”) brings audiences world-class theater, dance and music, performed by many of the world’s most talented and sought-after artists. With its eclectic programming that mirrors the diverse landscape of Los Angeles, and its notability as the entertainment capital of the world, The Wallis offers distinctive and revered presentations from across the US and around the globe. Housed in a new breathtaking 70,000-square-foot venue designed by Zoltan E. Pali, FAIA of Studio Pali Fekete architects, The Wallis celebrates both the classic and the modern. This is reflected in the juxtaposition of the restored, original 1933 Beverly Hills Post Office (on the National Register of Historic Places) that serves as the theater’s dramatic yet welcoming lobby and the 150-seat Lovelace Studio Theater, which connect seamlessly to the contemporary 5...00-seat, state-of-the-art Bram Goldsmith Theater. Together, these structures embrace the city’s history and its future, creating a performing arts destination for LA-area visitors and residents alike. Now in its second season, The Wallis’ 2014-2015 programming also includes its prestigious "Arts & Ideas" series, conversations with guests from the realms of culture, literature and politics.
