About The Bonstelle Theatre
The Bonstelle Theatre is a Broadway-style house with a 1,143-seat auditorium featuring a balcony, owned by Wayne State University. The theater hosts local and touring dance and theatrical productions. The Beaux-Arts structure was originally built in 1902 as the Temple Beth-El, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. Here, future stars of theatre, film, and television follow in the footsteps of such successful alumni as Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning S. Epatha Merkerson (NBC’s Law and Order, Lackawanna Blues) and Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters, NBC’s Heroes).
