Performance Space
The Performance Space at the Wexner Center provides a unique experience for both audience and performers. This “black box” space can be transformed into nearly any configuration to accommodate virtually any type of performance.

Depending on the setup, the Performance Space can hold 150-250 seats on the floor. Stand-up shows can accommodate up to 550 attendees. The cabaret setup, featuring table seating and beverage bars, can accommodate 200.

The Performance Space is also suitable for dinners, receptions, and similar social occasions.

Mershon Auditorium
Built in 1957 and operated by the Wexner Center since 1989, Mershon Auditorium is a premier venue for dance, music, theater, lectures, multimedia presentations, and more.

Mershon has a seating capacity of nearly 2,500 on the main floor and in the balcony. Wheelchair-accessible seating is available. An orchestra pit, located off the front of the stage, accommodates 100 chairs. Precise acoustics, spacious seating, complete “back-of-house” facilities, and professional staff are just a few of the highlights of Mershon. The auditorium’s excellent sightlines make any seat the best in the house.

The stage at Mershon can also be transformed into a “black box” space, creating a more intimate and flexible setting, with both audience and performers on stage.

In addition to hosting Wexner Center performances and numerous Ohio State University activities, Mershon Auditorium welcomes large-scale concerts and events presented by varied area promoters and organizations.

    Whomever is booking these shows at the Wex... 1) Open google 2) Type Skully's... or any other proper venue for christ's sake. 3) Book show. The wexner center is the antithesis of rock'n'roll.
