Built in 1965 to be Lincoln Center's main playhouse, the Beaumont features a sleekly modern (if dated) design by Jo Mielziner and architect Eero Saarinen. In recent years, the area immediately surrounding the Beaumont was redesigned with the addition of outdoor tables and chairs. Downstairs from the 1,041-seat Beaumont is the second stage, the smaller Mitzi Newhouse Theater. Lincoln Center Theater has opened several acclaimed, high-profile successes in this house, including The Light in the Piazza, Tom Stoppard's Coast of Utopia trilogy and the smash-hit revival of South Pacific.
