The intimate Cabot Theatre, modeled after an 18th century European opera house, is widely considered to be the most beautiful theatre in Milwaukee.
The Broadway Theatre Center, operated by Skylight Music Theatre, was completed in 1993. The complex includes the Cabot Theatre and Studio Theatre, the Skylight Bar and Bistro, and the Dorothea C. Mayer Salon.
The Cabot Theatre is a 20th century interpretation of the 18th century French opera house tradition. Patrons enjoy a grand entrance to an intimate setting, which includes the modern luxury of wide seats, comfortable spaces between rows, and upholstered, free-standing chairs in the boxes. The Cabot Theatre seats 358, with 221 of these seats on the orchestra level in 12 rows with unobstructed views. There are 89 seats in the dress circle (first balcony) and 48 seats in the gallery (second balcony).
The Studio Theatre is a black box style theatre. It features loose chair seating for up to 99 in an informal atmosphere, which allows the audience to feel a personal connection with the performers. Seating can be rearranged to accommodate a variety of needs.
Dorothea C. Mayer Salon is a European-style salon located on the second level and overlooks Catalano Square. It is a large, beautiful space that is flexible in seating arrangements, accommodating up to 50 people seated at tables, 100 people seated assembly style or standing.
The Skylight Bar and Bistro is an attractive cabaret-style space with tables and chairs seating up to 100, with standing room for 175. The Bar is suitable for receptions and meetings, and includes a small stage for intimate performances.
