Best Performance Space

The Long Center

You got your majestic 2,442-seat Michael & Susan Dell Hall, your black boxy Debra & Kevin Rollins Studio Theatre that can seat 229, your City Terrace (our town's front porch), courtyard, and West Lawn: The Long isn't just Austin's best performance space, but it's our city's hallowed hall of performance spaces, just ask residents Austin Symphony, Ballet Austin, Austin Lyric Opera, and recurring SXSW guest Jimmy Kimmel who brings his late-night antics to town – among others. No seat is a bad seat at the Long Center, even if you're standing. And the view of the Austin skyline from this iconic building is stunning – a performance on its own.
