The Geffen Playhouse at the center of Westwood Village has played a key role in Los Angeles theater since 1995 and houses a range of theater productions. Originally one of the oldest buildings in Westwood, the Geffen Playhouse was reconstructed as a 639 seat, state-of-the-art theater complex in 2005.
A not-for-profit organization, the Geffen Playhouse was donated to nearby UCLA in 1994 and rededicated after mogul David Geffen donated $5 million to the venue in 1995.
Within the playhouse are two theaters, the Gil Cates Theater, which is referred to as the main stage, and the Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater. The main stage was named after the founder of the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, Gil Cates, who serves as producing director at the Geffen.
