Our theatre is the result of an extraordinary founding gift from Mandell and Madeleine Berman (z”l). Since opening our doors in 2011, The Berman Center for the Performing Arts has continued to embody the spirit of this couple who believed in giving back to their community and in the arts’ ability to teach and inspire.
