Learn How a Theater Was Made

Theater for a New Audience is hosting a free public series of discussions with the team that built its new space in Brooklyn, the 299-seat Scripps Main Stage and the 50-seat Rogers Studio, both housed at the new Polonsky Shakespeare Center.  The series is called "Creating a Theater for a New Audience: The Intersection of Architecture, Design, and Theater."  Here's information about the first part which will take place on January 5, 2014, at 5:30 p.m.

Scenic designer and architectural consultant for Peter Brook's Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord in Paris and BAM Harvey Theater Jean-Guy Lecat will be interviewed by Randy Gener, award-winning editor, writer, critic, and artist, about simplicity, proportions, and not doing too much.
