The Crush calls the historic Gesa Power House Theatre home: a world-class, 300-seat performing arts theater located in downtown Walla Walla, Washington. The 120-year-old building was once the Walla Walla Gas Plant, originally built to produce coal gas and pipe it underground to light the streets, businesses and homes of Walla Walla. The building was converted to generate electricity around the year 1905 by installing steam driven dynamos and transformers.

In 2011, the interior of the building was transformed into a state-of-the-art performing arts theater. You can learn more about the transformation here.
