The University of Missouri-St. Louis’ Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center offers two theaters that allow for great intimacy between the artist and the audience. Designed by the acclaimed architectural firm of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, the Center houses the 1,625-seat Anheuser-Busch Performance Hall and the 300-seat E. Desmond and Mary Ann Lee Theater.
The Anheuser-Busch Performance Hall, with its warm European opera house feel, seats up to 1,625 – the only performance space of its size in St. Louis.
The Lee Theater – a marvelously flexible black-box-like theater space – allows even closer interaction between audience and performer.
The flexibility of the two theaters allows the Touhill and its partners to bring a wide range of performing arts to this facility, and make it the ultimate teaching and learning experience for faculty, students, and the community.
