Located next to Downtown Las Vegas, just 5 minutes from the freeway, you can park for free or valet for $10 at productions.
There’s a wonderful bar and snack restaurant on the mezzanine offering lovely salads and sandwiches before, during and after shows.
Reynolds Hall is home to Broadway shows including Book Of Mormon, Ragtime, Elf the Musical, Beauty & The Beast and many more.
As well as the huge Reynolds Hall there’s a 258-seat Jazz cabaret style theatre for more intimate performances as well as a 250-seat Troesh Studio Theatre.
The Smith Center is a world-class performing arts facility designed to develop and present the best in theatre.
This collection of venues can both host the world’s finest performances from Broadway shows to world-class concerts, and support and encourage local artists.
This venue has brought fine art of the world to Downtown Las Vegas.
The great ambition to develop a nationally-renowned performing arts center urged The Smith Center’s design team to visit venues across North America and Europe in 2007 in order to study some of the world’s finest opera houses, concert halls and performance venues.
