The long-awaited “The Space at Westbury” will finally make its debut, with doors opening Tuesday, 12 years after the Tudor-style theater’s closure.

The new $10 million state-of-the-art performance is a repurposing of the 1927 brick-and-timber theater that was a landmark on Post Avenue until it was condemned and became a blight.

The Tuesday event is for invited media and arts industry members.
