The Jerusalem Theatre, Israel's largest centre for art and culture, is located in the heart of the capital's Talbieh neighborhood, near the Presidential Residence. Established in 1971 at the initiative of Miles M and Gita Sherover and then Mayor Teddy Kollek, it was designed by architect Michael Nadler.  Three additional halls, donated by the Chicago-based Crown Family with the support of the Jerusalem Foundation and the Jerusalem Municipality, opened in 1986. The Theatre continues to renew and  develop its facility and recently opened a new hall, The Studio (HaUlpan).

The Theatre's unique structure houses five elegant halls: the Sherover Theatre, seats 970; the Henry Crown Symphony Hall seats 760; the Rebecca Crown Auditorium seats 452; the Little Theatre (Teatron Hakatan) seats 117; and the Studio (HaUlpan) seats 300. There is a restaurant and, coffee-shop, a book- and music shop, and large foyers presenting alternating art exhibitions. Facilities feature access for the disabled, and include an assistive listening system for the hearing-impaired.

Hundreds of plays by various Israeli theateres, leading fringe performances and festival productions  are staged every year. 
In addition, the Theatre hosts diverse musical activities, including dozens of concerts with leading orchestras, chamber music ensembles, recitals, and operas with local guest and international choruses, soloists and conductors, in a variety of styles from jazz through pop and rock, and from Israeli song to world music.
