ABOUT THIS THEATRE
The massive renovation of the Adler Theatre began in 1984 and continued for two years. The building was essentially gutted and then restored to its former Art Deco elegance. Original crystal and glass chandeliers were restored. Original seats were rebuilt, reupholstered and their hand-painted side panels were restored. Also, new carpeting was reproduced in England using a roll of the original floral woolen carpeting found during remodeling. The rebirth of the Orpheum into the magnificent Adler Theatre was finally a reality with the Adler Theatre's curtain rising on April 16, 1986 with a gala concert by Burt Bacharach and the Quad City Symphony Orchestra. The stage expansion and backstage renovation project in 2005 and 2006 allowed the Adler Theatre to provide a greater economic impact, improve performance quality, increase facility usage, operate as a more competitive, cost effective theatre and continue to enhance the quality of life in the Quad Cities. Today, the Adler Theatre preserves the grandeur of an era gone by...treasured by performers and patrons alike. The beautifully restored 2,400 seat Adler Theatre has hosted celebrity headliners, Broadway greats, comedians, dance and symphony performances where the proud tradition of quality entertainment lives on. Jam Theatricals and The Adler Theatre proudly presents the Broadway at The Adler season.
