Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

Added: Nov 30, 2014
Category: New Orlando Attractions

Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is a performing arts center in Downtown Orlando, Florida, United States.
It replaced the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre, now renamed the Bob Carr Theater, originally built in 1926. The new performing arts center had its grand opening on November 6, 2014.[1] Barton Myers Associates of Los Angeles is the design architect, with acoustics by Artec Consultants and Theatre Project Consultants designing the theaters.

The venue was approved along with a new Amway Center (which replaced the Amway Arena) and improvements to the Citrus Bowl after a series of hearings and votes, culminating in final votes in the Orange County Board of County Commissioners on July 26, 2007, and the Orlando City Council on August 6, 2007.

The design for the new venue was revealed on August 21, 2008. The venue features a 2,700-seat amplified hall (the Walt Disney Theater) for Broadway theater-class play events and a 300-seat venue (the Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater) for smaller shows and events.[2] A third theater, a 1,700-seat acoustic hall for ballet, operas and orchestral performances, will begin construction in 2016, with a completion date sometime in late 2018.

The venue will cost US$514 million, with the completion of the third stage, the Acoustical Theater. Two-thirds of the funding comes from public funds, largely from the Orange County, Florida, tourist development tax. The other one-third comes from private donations, including a large grant from the Dr. P. Phillips Foundation, the philanthropic organization funded through the estate of Dr. Philip Phillips.
