Donate Now

Renovations to the Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab have:

► Created a beautiful new exterior and lobby space to welcome audiences

► Expanded and upgraded all backstage areas, enhancing production capabilities and the artist experience 

► Constructed a dedicated stage management booth, advancing the technical capabilities of the theatre lab

A Rejuvenated Theatre Lab

The new Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab lobby has become an invaluable place for our patrons to gather and celebrate. The Lab's modernized lobby combined with its upgraded dressing rooms and new state-of-the-art stage management booth makes it an ideal home for bold new work and the region's leading artists. The Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab represents the future of Olney Theatre Center, setting the tone for the rest of the Staging the Future Capital Campaign.

A Gathering Space for Our Community

The live theatre experience encompasses more than just what is presented on the stage. Since it was renovated in 2020, the Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab lobby has hosted opening night receptions, workshops, classes, and private dinners. A lobby space that is both inviting and flexible is essential to Olney Theatre Center's ability to provide a diverse range of cultural experiences for our community.

"These days, to keep up with whatever drama is big beyond Times Square, you either hop on a bus to New York or drive to Olney."
