History

The Brady Theater in Tulsa, Oklahoma is one of the most treasured entertainment venues in the country. It is located in the heart of the southern city, and first opened its doors in the early 1900s. It was originally constructed to be a municipal auditorium and convention hall. It was called Convention Hall for the first 40 years of its life, and was nicknamed the "largest hall between Kansas City and Houston."The theater has become a hot spot for some of the most famous works in musical history.

In the 1930s, world-renowned architect Bruce Goff was hired to remodel the auditorium into something grand and elegant. The city wanted the convention hall to be something of a showpiece that the residents could brag about. Goff transformed the barn-like structure by adding Art Deco elements including luxurious draperies and seats, vertical wall panels and acoustic ceiling tiles that were painted green, blue, white and gold. There were even gold dividers between the ceiling tiles and gilded air conditioning grilles. Five large green and white pendant lights were installed in the center of the auditorium, and the theater became a grand palace for entertainment.

The theater was once again remodeled in the early 1950s that expanded seating capacity and added upper and lower lobbies. The theater once again got a new name. This time, it was renamed Tulsa Municipal Theater. In the late 1970s, the historic theater was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and since then, the theater has attracted thousands of visitors each year to its magnificent and elegantly-designed auditorium. In the coming months, the theater will host concerts featuring Switchfoot, Il Divo and Gavin DeGraw, and comedians like Aziz Ansari. Don't miss your chance to see these and other fantastic acts when you come out to this jewel of Tulsa.

Home City

Brady Theater is located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which is known for being the "Oil Capital of the World." But the city is known for more than just its oil production. It has a thriving arts and theater community, and offers residents and visitors the chance chance to sample all that the culture of New York and Los Angeles without having to venture very far. It is the second most populated city in the state of Oklahoma, and is now more reliant on finance, aviation, technology and telecommunications than just oil. Tulsa is also home to Oral Roberts University and the University of Tulsa, and is located in what is considered, "green country." There's something for everyone in Tulsa, and you never know what you'll find when you explore this one-of-a-kind city.


Seating Layout

Although the entertainment venue is more than 100 years old, it has been updated to allow for modernization of lighting, sound and visual elements. The auditorium can seat more than 2,800 people. There are several options for seating, including the Main Floor that is directly in front of the stage and a Balcony Level that is located above the Main Floor. Although some seats are closer than others, every seat in the house will give you a fantastic view of the show you have chosen to see.


Trivia

Brady Theater has served many purposes in its century of use. It began as simply a community meeting place and a place to showcase local talent, and now it is a beautiful entertainment venue that features some of the biggest acts of the day. But during its storied past, it was used for something out of the ordinary—a detention center. In the early 1920s, the city was torn apart by the Tulsa Race Riot. During this horrific time in the city and state's history, men involved in the conflict were taken to Convention Hall, which served as a detention center. While the city and the venue have come a long way from this tumultuous time, the theater still carries the town's history within its hallowed walls.
