The Ruth Finley Person Theater at Luther Burbank Center for the Arts is a flexible venue, which means we can accommodate both seated and open floor configurations as needed. When seated, the theater has a capacity of 1681. It is the largest fixed-seat venue in Sonoma County with no seat more than 75 feet from the stage. When main floor seats are removed, the open floor/seated balcony configuration raises the capacity to 2000. The theater’s unique thrust-stage design provides a level of intimacy between artists and audiences unlike any other in Northern California. For nearly 40 years, LBC has been provided the best environment to see your favorite performer up close and personal.
