Something really exciting will be happening at the beginning of the new year. Sacramento’s beloved B Street Theatre will be opening the 2018 season at its new Midtown venue – The Sofia Tsakopoulos Center for the Arts, or The Sofia – located at 2700 Capitol Ave. The center will have a 250-seat main stage, a 350-seat children’s stage – The Sutter Theatre for Children – and will host not only theatre, but comedy, dance, and musical acts as well. An onsite restaurant, open-air courtyard and large lobby will make the guest experience unforgettable at this beautiful new performing arts center.
