Guild Hall is thrilled to announce the completion of its theater renovation, with performing arts programming commencing in July. Guild Hall’s facility-wide capital improvements project and campaign was first announced in 2021 and ushered in a period of 21st-century revitalization for the legendary multi-arts center. The theater’s completion marks the project’s final phase; the institution’s galleries, education space, art handling, gardens, and offices were completed in July 2023.


To celebrate the theater’s reopening, Guild Hall will host “An Evening with Billy Porter,” a benefit concert on Friday, July 12, at 8 PM. Guests are encouraged to dress in creative attire, walk the red carpet, and celebrate the reopening of the newly renovated theater with the Grammy, Emmy, and Tony Award-winning actor and singer Billy Porter, widely known for his tour-de-force performance in Broadway’s Kinky Boots and his portrayal of Pray Tell in the FX series, Pose.
