Byham Theater

The 1050 seat Byham Theatre is one of the jewels of the Pittsburgh Cultural district. In the 1990’s, the 1903 theatre underwent a series of renovations. 1995 brought new restrooms, an expanded box office, a new marquee, lobby enhancements, and an elevator. In 1999, the height of the fly tower was increased by 20 feet, and the original rope and sand bag rigging was replaced by new manual counterweight rigging. The 1999 renovation also included new lighting, enlargement of the orchestra pit and a new building-wide HVAC system.
