ABOUT THE PROJECT
Having outgrown their existing facilities, the Everyman Theatre acquired the historic yet vacant Town Theater for expansion of their thriving reparatory group. The building has one of the more interesting histories of downtown Baltimore theatres. Originally built in 1911, it underwent many transformations from the vaudeville Empire Theatre to the burlesque Palace Theatre to being gutted into a parking garage and then to the Town Movie Theatre which closed in 1990. As the new home of the Everyman Theatre, the goal of the renovation was to create a lively welcoming presence in this emerging arts district. The project included 32,900 GSF for a 250-seat studio theater, scene shop, dressing rooms, green room, rehearsal room (future black box theater), classrooms, offices, costume shop and prop shop. Project financing vehicles included historic and new market tax credits.
ABOUT THE PLAY:
Red, winner of six 2010 Tony Awards, is a portrait of the abstract expressionist Mark Rothko. Set against the changing landscape of the early 1960s, the celebrated artist has just landed his biggest commission: a series of massive murals for New York’s posh Four Seasons Restaurant.
