New York City To Get New Theatre

This is exciting news theatre fans. It was just announced today that Lincoln Center is making plans to construct a new theatre atop the Vivian Beaumont Theatre, current home to the Tony winning South Pacific. Construction is set to begin on the 131 seat theatre this Spring. The plan is for the theatre to be completed as early as 2011. According to a source from the theatre the venue will be named the Claire Tow Theatre, in honor of the wife of LCT board member Leonard Tow.

The new space is expected to cost $41 million and besides the theatre it will also house rehearsal and office space, as well as an outdoor terrace. I have included an artist's rendering of the new space. Hopefully this new theatre will give emerging artist's a chance to show their work in a more intimate space.
