Miller Theatre at Columbia University is located on the Morningside Heights campus of Columbia University. It is a performing arts producer dedicated to developing and presenting new music.[1]

In 1988, the former McMillin Theater was renovated and renamed the Kathryn Bache Miller Theatre[2] with George Steel as its first executive director. The current director, Melissa Smey, took over from Steel in 2009.[3][4]

Miller Theatre is particularly known for its Composer Portraits Series. Each concert in the series focuses on the work of a single composer.
