Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater at the Geffen Playhouse
Opened in the fall of 2005, the Audrey Skirball-Kenis Theater at the Geffen Playhouse is a small and intimate auditorium (117 seats). But in the design by renowned architect Ron Frink, the stage has the exact dimensions of the main stage, allowing new shows to be rehearsed and blocked while other productions are in progress. The theater is named after Audrey Skirball-Kenis, who during the course of her life was a major arts supporter. In the years before her death, Skirball Kenis was a board member and major contributor to the Geffen Playhouse.
