Malkin Bowl is a fantastic place to enjoy theater. Not only can you watch a brilliant show, you can do it beneath the sun and stars. This outdoor venue has played host to a number of music and theater events. Music concerts often find the Bowl a perfect location to draw in the crowds. The 1996 Pearl Jam concert was one of the biggest and most memorable event held here, and even inspired the place's nickname, Merkin Ball after their record. The Malkin Bowl is also home to the non-profit production company TUTS or Theatre Under The Stars.
