We attended the Alvin Ailey Dance American Dance Theatre Cal Performances at Zellerbach Hall. It was the first time that we had been in this building. It is very convenient to BART and to restaurants in the area. The theatre itself is a nice size...More

This theater is located in the heart of the UC Berkeley campus. It's small enough for most of the audience to get a decent view. I came here for the sold out 2018 Shen Yun Chinese Classical dance. Just beautiful with a live orchestra. It...More

Great venue, lots of space, comfortable chairs. Good views all around, and not too pricey. Been here a few times for piano concerts (Lang Lang, Bronfman), and it was good! Good acoustics too. Very clean and organized venue.

Look up calperformances online -- there's a tab for "Visit," and then "Parking." There are several campus parking structures and City of Berkeley lots and structures nearby. But also check to see if there's a basketball game... More
