BAM Harvey Theater

Winner of the 1988 Architectural Theater Award, the Harvey (formerly the Majestic) resembles a romantic ruin of a theater space. Originally a traditional playhouse, the theater was converted into a movie house in 1942 and abandoned in 1968. This unique space was obtained in 1987 by BAM’s then-president Harvey Lichtenstein for the landmark production of Peter Brook’s The Mahabharata. The Harvey is located two blocks from BAM’s Howard Gilman Opera House and has 874 seats.
