Berlokasi di Jalan Cikini Raya, Jakarta Pusat, Pusat Kesenian Jakarta ini dinamakan seperti nama maestro Indonesia--seorang musisi serta komposer, Ismail Marzuki. Teater di dalamnya mampu menampung 1.240 orang dan dilengkapi dengan fasilitas fly tower dengan ketinggian sama dengan panggung, yang memungkinkan para kru panggung mengganti latar belakang pertunjukan secara vertikal. Di tempat inilah digelar dua buah drama musikal yang menarik banyak minat penonton, yaitu Matah Ati--yang berkisah tentang peristiwa suksesi di kerajaan Mangkunegaran serta Laskar Pelangi--yang berkisah tentang pendidikan anak-anak miskin di Pulau Belitong.
