The Hammer Theatre, named after former San José Mayor Susan Hammer and her husband Phil Hammer, a San José Rep Board Trustee, was completed in 1997 via a collaboration between the San José Redevelopment Agency and San José Repertory Theatre Company. This distinctive theatre offered theatrical productions for over seven years for San José and Bay Area patrons and to national acclaim.
In March 2016, San José State University reopened the Hammer Theatre as a distinctive, high-quality performance venue in the heart of downtown San José. The theatre serves San José’s community and the university through high-quality programming expressive of the unique characteristics and diverse cultures that comprise Silicon Valley.
