Count Basie Center For The Arts, Red Bank, NJ

The Count Basie Center for the Arts is a landmarked performing arts center in Red Bank, Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States. The core structure opened as the Carlton Theater in 1926, became the Monmouth Arts Center in 1973, then was renamed to the Count Basie Theatre in 1984 to honor jazz great and Red Bank native William "Count" Basie. It was designed by William E. Lehman and has seating capacity for 1,568 patrons. In 2018, the venue changed its name to the Count Basie Center for the Arts to "raise the Basie name to represent all that this regional, center for the arts stands for: our nonprofit mission of arts and education, our work in schools and the community, and all of the excellence and excitement that comes from that." At the same time the theater itself had its name purchased and changed to the Hackensack Meridian Health Theatre. In 2020, the Center purchased the Basie Center Cinemas, and opened the Center's second venue, The Vogel.
