A world-class performing arts center may soon be coming to Boca Raton

A world-class, multi-million dollar performing arts center could soon become a reality for the city of Boca Raton.

Plans are underway to upgrade the Mizner Park Amphitheater and build an innovative multi-space venue for theater, music, technology and business events.

The project is led by Andrea Virgin, President and Chair of the Board of the Boca Raton Center for Arts and Innovation.

It is expected to be one of the first of its kind in the United States to produce a venue for world-class programming in the traditional performing arts, and for programming yet to be expected for audiences and performers for the 100 coming years. years.

It’s very versatile,” she said. “So the whole campus is considered for indoor or outdoor experiences, free, paid for experiences for the student, for the professional, for the young or the less young people, for the day, or the night, during the week or the weekend, and all year round.”

Councilman Andy Thomson said the project will help fill a void and transform the city into South Florida’s cultural arts epicenter.

“We don’t have this first-class, world-class kind of thing that would have people travel to Boca to watch a show,” he said.

The cost of the project is over $100 million, funds that are currently being privately raised by the center’s nonprofit organization.
