Hosted by Judith Light, the festivities kicked off Thursday morning with the official ribbon cutting ceremony and celebration. The centerpiece of The Drama League Theater Center is The Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Studio Lab, a flexible-use creative space for the development of new plays and musicals for Broadway, Off-Broadway, and for leading theatres around the country.

The Joseph and Lauren Pizza Welcome Center greets guests as they enter The Drama League Theatre Center, where the Founders Wall, Hospitality Lounge, reception amenities, a reservations desk for all events, and the entrances to The Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Studio Lab and the Creatve Suites are located. Opening from the completely restored, 1920's Art Deco grand lobby, The Welcome Center will be the crossroads for artists, patrons, VIP guests, and others who are part of The Drama League community. Both The Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Studio Lab and The Joseph and Lauren Pizza Welcome Center were designed by FXFOWLE, the architects behind Lincoln Center's renovation of Alice Tully Hall, and FisherDachs, co-founded by Jules Fisher, eight-time Tony Award-winning lighting and theatre designer.
