Robinson Center’s “Second Act” a classic showstopper
The reopening of the newly renovated Robinson Auditorium, which has been billed as its “second act,” is the biggest recent development in the cultural life of Central Arkansas. The $70 million upgrade included acoustical and technological enhancements, a grand ballroom and patio overlooking the Arkansas River, new conference spaces and expanded lobbies and public facilities, all wrapped up in a LEED-certified package that maintains the historical significance of the original structure. This renovation to the home of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, Ballet Arkansas and Celebrity Attractions opens up a world of entertainment possibilities for the state and makes the center nationally competitive and capable of hosting any Broadway production. The newly renovated Robinson Center will also henceforth be home to the Miss Arkansas Pageant, which has been held in Hot Springs for the past 58 years.
