Topfer Theatre at Zach

202 S. Lamar
Austin, 78704
With the debut of this 430-seat, state-of-the-art venue in 2012, Zach Theatre opened a mainstage worthy of its status as a professional theatre with a national reputation. The 21-foot proscenium, 70-foot fly tower, and roomy wings give this company named for Austin native son Zachary Scott space to stage shows as large and complex as those in Broadway houses and regional theatres. Major musicals are Zach's bread and butter (Mary Poppins, Sophisticated Ladies, Ragtime), though it also stages notable plays such as the Tony-winning LBJ drama All the Way and has hosted a taping of The Daily Show, cabaret performances by Sandra Bernhard and Molly Ringwald, and film world premieres for SXSW and the Austin Film Festival. This playhouse backs up to South Lamar and shares a campus on Lady Bird Lake's southern shore with Zach's 230-seat Kleberg Stage and 130-seat Whisenhunt Stage.
