Where Orlando - - Maps -

Kathy Rams­berger is re­spon­si­ble for lead­ing the ef­fort to cre­ate one of the na­tion’s new­est per­form­ing-arts cen­ters of the 21st cen­tury, a $500-mil­lion-plus pro­ject which opened less than a year ago in the heart of down­town Or­lando. Prior to tak­ing on this ma­jor role, she served as the city's film com­mis­sioner, where she re­cruited and man­aged ma­jor en­ter­tain­ment projects for HBO, Walt Dis­ney Pic­tures and Warner Broth­ers.

The build­ing was al­ways de­signed to be an in­vi­ta­tion for peo­ple to come in­side and to come to­gether. The cen­ter is an ex­pres­sion of Cen­tral Florida with our iconic porch roof, our glass ‘Florida Room’ walls, and our open doors on the DeVos Room and the Vis­it­ing down­town used to be the best-kept se­cret, but more and more we’re get­ting na­tional and in­ter­na­tional at­ten­tion for our food scene, our arts and cul­ture scene and the many unique and di­verse events—it’s a great place to take a va­ca­tion from your va­ca­tion.

Our three the­aters en­able us to have great di­ver­sity from an in­cred­i­ble Broad­way sea­son to our res­i­dent com­pa­nies, Or­lando Bal­let and the Or­lando Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra, and a va­ri­ety of lo­cal artists, dance, mu­sic and com­edy per­for­mances. I’m very ex­cited about the se­ries we’ve cre­ated that will round out those of­fer­ings— our Mor­gan Stan­ley Jazz at Dr. Phillips Cen­ter and Chefs at Dr. Phillips Cen­ter.
