The Angelica and Russ Berrie Center for the Performing and Visual Arts opened in 1999. The Center is home to the Sharp Theatre, a 338-seat proscenium theatre; The Myron and Elaine Adler Theatre, a black box theater and the Kresge and Pascal art galleries. The Berrie Center has developed a rich series of public programs including dance, theatre, concerts and exhibitions of contemporary art. Additionally, the Berrie Center is home to the Ramapo College School of Contemporary Arts with specialist facilities for photography, dance, music, and theater production.

Over its 23-year history, the Berrie Center has brought some of the most renowned artists to the stage, including Tony-nominated actor and singer Jarrod Spector; John Pizzarelli, jazz guitarist; New York-based Paul Taylor Dance Company comedian Paula Poundstone, musician Eileen Ivers and singers Judy Collins and Leon Redbone, among others.

In addition, Ramapo College students presented a wide range of musical and stage performances in the theaters of the Berrie Center, which also hosts the annual Les Paul Festival which recognizes the contributions of guitar virtuoso Les Paul, a longtime supporter of the College.
