The Microsoft Theater is a 7,100-seat venue located in the heart of the L.A. Live mixed-use development. The facility is a premier mid-sized music/theater facility that accommodates live music performances, comedy shows, family shows, short-run Broadway and community theater. The innovative trapezoidal layout puts each one of the seats in the 3-level theatre no further than 220 feet from the performance. When it was complete, the project was honored as Theatre of the Year at the 19th Annual Pollstar Concrete Industry Awards.
