The 500-seat B. Iden Payne Theatre provides the perfect setting for plays and dance performances, allowing audiences a close-up look at the action onstage. Named for acclaimed University of Texas teacher and director, Ben Iden Payne, this facility not only stages productions by internationally celebrated theatre companies and dance troupes, but also productions by students of the UT Department of Theatre & Dance. In addition, Payne Theatre has hosted Houston’s Alley Theatre, the National Theatre of the Deaf and the 1999 world premiere of Tennessee Williams’ “Spring Storm.”
