On Oct. 21, the new George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater opened in Salt Lake City.

The grand opening event took place from Oct. 21–23. The event featured performances from Brian Stokes Mitchell—a Tony Award-winning performer—Megan Hilty, actress in Smash and Tony-nominated performer, and performances from Ballet West, Utah’s Opera Chorus, Repertory Dance Theatre and Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company.

The theater’s performance hall holds 2,500 seats, and features a six-story lobby and retractable glass walls. The theater also has a 150-seat Black Box theater, which will host local performances and events. Additionally, the Encore Bistro will be open for breakfast and lunch, and will be open for dinner on show nights.

“The Eccles Theater is a beautiful and welcomed addition to our thriving downtown cultural district,” says Scott Beck, president/CEO, Visit Salt Lake. “In addition to it being a beautiful building, its LEED certification shows a continuation of our destination’s commitment to sustainability.”

I’ve been traveling Amtrak for business a lot lately, from Washington, D.C., to points north, including Philadelphia, New York City, and Newark, and I’ve been reminded of how relaxing and time saving train travel can be. For one thing, train stations are typically right in the heart of cities; for another, it’s easy to plug in and work.
