Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre

Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre

Located within the Michigan League building on the central campus of the University of Michigan, the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre is an intimate, shoe-box theatre seating 644. Decorated with solid oak paneling that creates an atmosphere of elegance and charm, the Mendelssohn Theatre is perfect for smaller conferences. The Mendelssohn Theatre is also used extensively for theatrical productions and solo recitals. The Mendelssohn Theatre is one of the few theaters in the United States to have a "cyclorama," a curved wall at the back of the stage. The cyclorama improves sound in the theater and can be used for creative lighting effects.
