The city of Mountain View did a smart thing soon after opening this gorgeous high-tech performing arts center on Castro Street in 1991: It lured away the critically acclaimed TheatreWorks, which had been producing plays in Palo Alto for 20 years. In addition to TheatreWorks' productions, the MVCPA also hosts the Peninsula Youth Theater, and stages a nicely varied selection of events, including cool lectures by scientists for the nearby NASA Ames Research Center.
Intelligently designed with state-of-the-art technology, the Center is perfectly suited for its stated goal—to host a comprehensive performing arts program for a culturally diverse community.
