What do you want in a performing arts center? An expansive concert hall with pristine acoustics? An intimate studio theatre with the flexibility to present stage plays, dance, and chamber music? An exterior space to which patrons are drawn as a gathering place during performance breaks, maybe one with a sweeping view of the city skyline? How about staff, both paid and volunteer, that make every visitor – tuxedoed swell and jeans-clad joe alike – feel welcome and valued? The Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Center for the Performing Arts has it all, bringing it together in an elegant package that has the style, eclecticism, and inclusive feel of Austin itself. And every visit gives us another reason to believe that our city truly has the performing arts center that it dreamed of for so, pardon the pun, long.
