Located in Princeton, New Jersey, the original 1,065 seat McCarter theatre building was constructed in 1929 to house the theatrical activities of the Triangle Club of Princeton University, and has now operated as an independent non-profit theatre since 1973. In 2003, the 360-seat Berlind Theatre was built as a significant addition to the original historic structure. Today, McCarter Theatre Center is recognized as one of the foremost performing arts centers in this country, and the only that serves as both a professional producing theater and a major presenter of the performing arts. For more than 40 years, McCarter has consistently contributed to the cultural vibrancy and economic vitality of central New Jersey.
