THEATRE ARCHITECTURE

Theatre is about place as much as it is about time, and throughout the ages it’s been staged in arenas and basements, stadiums and jewel-box theatres. Where does theatre live in the U.S., who builds it—and for what audience? This issue will survey the case studies of a variety theatre buildings, from new constructions to radical restorations, and all kinds in between. And, it will feature a wide-ranging essay by theatre consultant Joshua Dachs on the many shapes theatres have taken along the vibrating continuum between nature and artifice.
