Welcome to the John Cranford Adams Playhouse and the Department of Theater facilities, at Hofstra University. The Playhouse is a 1,105-seat, proscenium-style theater that serves the University, as well as the surrounding community, as the premier cultural venue on the Hofstra Campus. Not only is it the site for many of Hofstra’s finest theatrical, musical, dance, and lecture events, the venue also – as the schedule allows – provides a rental house for local, national, and international productions, conferences, performing arts companies, lectures, school events, and church groups.
Your Event at Hofstra
Though the primary function of the Adams Playhouse is to host University events and academic programs, the facility is offered as a rental house to non-University productions and organizations (as the University schedule allows) as a community service.
