Exceptional Shows and Events at Orlando’s Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

Article Feature Image Credits: Dr. Phillips Center

Among the great cultural experiences available in Central Florida, an evening at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is one of the most elegant, entertaining, and memorable. The innovative, beautiful building, prominently featuring full facades of windows, only recently opened to the public in late 2014. From its prime location in the heart of downtown Orlando, it has become the region’s premier performing arts destinations and an arts and culture leader in the state and the South.

Shows at the Venue 

The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts hosts world-class talent on its stages in the 2,700-seat Walt Disney Theater and more intimate 300-seat Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater. This is a truly comprehensive performing arts space. It hosts concerts for all musical tastes and moods, including classical, opera, jazz, blues, rock, and more. Traveling Broadway shows, plays, musicals, ballet and other dance, comedy, and celebrity presentations are other regular offerings. 

Make It Dinner and a Show 

This combination is of course a classic way to spend an evening, and downtown Orlando offers numerous stellar nearby dining experiences. Here are a few recommended places to eat within just a few blocks of the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts: 

  • The Boheme – For steaks and seafood in the gorgeous luxury Grand Bohemian Hotel (which also has the Bösendorfer Lounge, an excellent place for drinks and desserts; also, consider a stay at this hotel if you’d like to spend part of your vacation in downtown Orlando)
  • Kres Chophouse – For one of Orlando’s most venerable steakhouse experiences
  • Kasa Restaurant & Bar – For creative East Asian-oriented fusion cuisine
  • Artisan’s Table – For eclectic seasonal American fare
  • The Rusty Spoon – For innovative, amazing farm-to-table meals
