The Mark Taper Forum opened in 1967 and is The Music Center’s most intimate theater. Located between the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and the Ahmanson Theater, the Mark Taper Forum is a circular building, with an exterior drum that is decorated with an intricate relief-sculpture mural and surrounded by two reflecting pools. The “thrust stage” provides seating on three-sides of the performers giving the audience the opportunity to view the performance from a variety of perspectives. It is the ideal stage for intimate dramatic plays and productions by Center Theatre Group.

The Mark Taper Forum underwent a $30 million renovation in 2007/08. All of the building and theatrical systems were replaced with state-of-the-art designs and improved audience amenities while maintaining the structural integrity of the original design.
