Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts
Each season, University of Florida Performing Arts presents the very best established and emerging national and international artists on the Phillips Center main stage, from Broadway, opera and dance to the superstars of pop, jazz, and classical music.
Since opening its doors in January 1992 with three sold-out performances of Cats, the Phillips Center has hosted performers as diverse as Tony Bennett, Itzhak Perlman, Yo Yo Ma, Peter, Paul and Mary, Bolshoi Ballet, Burt Bacharach, Ray Charles, Wynton Marsalis, Gregory Peck, Joshua Bell, Bill Cosby, Jessye Norman, Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra and Tommy Tune.
In recent years, the Phillips Center has hosted world premieres and been home to Romanian gymnasts and BaAka pygmies from the Central African rainforests as they mounted collaborative productions.
This state-of-the-art facility features a 1,700-seat proscenium hall with the latest in sound and lighting technology as well as a 200-seat, multi-purpose Black Box Theatre.
The Phillips Center is located in the University of Florida Cultural Plaza at the intersection of Hull Road and Southwest 34th Street.
