About Jerry Herman Ring Theatre
The 2015-2016 season marks the 77th year that the Ring Theatre has been offering enthralling theatre to the city of Coral Gables and the greater Miami area via the University of Miami’s historic theatre company. Created in 1946, the Ring has performed at three different sites — including a circus tent and a round building used to train Allied navigators during WW II. The newly remodeled theatre has been renamed for UM alumnus Jerry Herman, the legendary Tony Award-winning Broadway composer and lyricist. The flexible-seating venue features three main configurations: thrust seating; arena, or in the round seating; and traditional, or proscenium seating.
