Gateway, First Floor

Built to house everything from theater to multimedia, MICA's BBOX gives students a place for their performance work to thrive.

Located on the ground floor of the Gateway building, BBOX is MICA’s premier black box theater. It serves as a platform for a diverse range of works and mediums ranging from traditional theater to experimental and interdisciplinary exhibitions.

Named in recognition of two creative MICA spirits, BBOX is a play on "Betty & Bill’s Black Box" – specifically for Betty Cooke ’46 and William O. Steinmetz ’50.
