REDCAT is an acronym for the Roy & Edna Disney/CalArts Theater, an arts center that's part of the Disney Hall complex and also affiliated with the CalArts campus. Since it's a smaller venue, REDCAT can take on edgier and more experimental fare than its roomier big brother, Disney Hall. REDCAT features an intimate, versatile 240-seat theater/performance space and an adjoining gallery for art exhibits, as well as a comfortably modern lounge and bar area. Events range from theater, concerts and multimedia experimentation, with appearances by everyone from comedian Sandra Bernhard to the transgender performance artist Justin Bond. Like Disney Hall, REDCAT was designed by the celebrated architect Frank Gehry, who wrapped the building's facade in a playful curvilinear wave of stainless steel, which is highlighted further by neon lighting. Inside, REDCAT is colorful and brightly lit, while the theater's acoustics and sophisticated dual sound system were designed and fine tuned for both live performances and film screenings. The wood-paneled lounge (which includes a small bookstore) is brightened with a skylight and flowering plants, and the bartenders serve beer, wine, cocktails and espresso. Parking is available in Disney Hall's adjoining underground parking lot.
