Greenberg Theatre | About

The Harold and Sylvia Greenberg Theatre opened in March 2003 with the mission of providing the Washington, D.C. and American University communities a place to experience live performances in music, theatre and dance. The theatre was made possible by a $2 million gift from Harold and Sylvia Greenberg.


The 296 seat house was designed with our patrons in mind. We offer four handicap-accessible companion seats and two elevators to provide a comfortable experience for everyone. For more information, please contact the box office at 202-885-2587.
