With grand aspirations of becoming "the pride of the River and a shining beacon of creativity," the Tobin houses three incomparable spaces: the multipurpose 1,759-seat H-E-B Performance Hall, the intimate Carlos Alvarez Studio Theater and the River Walk Plaza (complete with 30-foot video wall for exterior projections). In addition to touring acts, the Tobin boasts 10 wildly creative companies in residence, including Soli Chamber Ensemble, the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio, Ballet San Antonio and AtticRep. The latter's gritty contemporary performances are just about as close as you'll get to Off Broadway in our sweet Texas sunshine. 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org
