Bridgeport - The Klein Memorial Auditorium

910 Fairfield Avenue

The 1,400 seat theatre opened in 1940, built from funds willed to the City by Bridgeport resident Jacob Klein. The Klein has played host to programs ranging in scope from symphonies, operas, and theatre, to local dance recitals, graduations, and union meetings. Such luminaries as Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Fiedler, Della Reese, Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, Paul Robeson, Milton Berle, Victor Borge have graced her stage. It has been the home of the Greater Bridgeport Symphony for the past 60 years. The auditorium was designed by architect Leonard Asheim and is an Art Deco design building with bronze doors and marble halls.

We saw the Vienna Boys Choir there and as always the choir was great. The Klein Auditorium definitely needs to be upgraded. The seats look as if they were in my Elementary School in the 4th grade and they're just as uncomfortable as those were but as a grown man they're even worse. I really wish they would put the money into redoing the interior because they get some great shows there

A beautiful place, I attend Church service every Sunday at 11a.m. City Wide Church rents the Klein out, I recommend the church service and any use of the building for a concert, or even another church service, I love the aura there.
