The Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts at Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus is a dynamic, state-of-the art performance venue serving one of the most diverse campuses and communities in the country. It is designed to nourish artistic exploration and development by students and other emerging artists while providing the entire community greater access to an exciting range of Broadway-quality, classical, and cutting-edge professional performances.
Impeccably crafted for the dramatic and technical demands of dance, music, and theatrical productions; this elegant, 320-seat theater provides finely tuned acoustics and top-tier lighting along with projection and other electronic capabilities. With a stage featuring a “sprung” floor extending to the seating area, the theater fosters an intimacy between performers and their audiences.
This extraordinary theater was made possible through the generosity of Long Island University Trustee Steven J. Kumble. It is part of an ambitious Campus renovation that created an extensive performing arts complex that includes a black box theater, dance studios, and a glass-enclosed art gallery. Among other major supporters of the performing arts complex are the EAB/Citigroup Foundation, Long Island University Board of Trustees Chair Edward Travaglianti, trustees Bruce C. Ratner and Donald H. Elliott, the City of New York and the Independence Community Foundation.
