Berlind Theatre

This dynamic, contemporary 360-seat performance space, which opened McCarter’s 2003-2004 season, was designed by award-winning architect Hugh Hardy.


Seating in the Berlind Theatre is accessed from the ground floor lobby by stairs or elevator.  Once inside the theatre, seats are arranged in stadium seating-- meaning each row goes up a step from the one in front of it.  Only Rows D and Q and Row C on the sides require no steps. Wheelchair accessible seating is available in Row C in both side sections, and Row Q 101-102.
