The award-winning architecture of the Harvey Theater offers a distinctive ambience for every performance on its stage.

Rental Inquiry Form


Please note: We are unable to process rental requests for the Harvey Theater, although the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House is now available for rental. As the situation changes, we will update this page.

Former Executive Producer Harvey Lichtenstein discovered what would become the Harvey Theater when looking for a new kind of venue for Peter Brook's eight-hour production of The Mahabharata. The award-winning renovation that followed beautifully preserved the deconstructed feels of the space, resulting in a striking theater with the ambience of a timeless ruin. The Harvey has since served as the unique setting for major stage and broadcast productions. The Harvey Theater recently underwent a renovation and expansion as a part of the BAM Strong, which also features the brand new Rudin Family Gallery and the Robert W. Wilson Sculpture Terrace.
