Theatre Architecture

An interesting piece in the Guardian about how much contemporary theatre architecture...well, sucks. Actually, a "love/hate relationship" is probably the more faithful way to render what is described here about the negotiations between theatre artists and architects. I feel this kind of discussion is long overdue in American (let alone New York). The question of what our theatres should look like in the 21st century might very well emerge as the most crucial topic of how theatre will survive.

Maybe frozen drinks and cupholders are the answer.

Thanks for the Vegas link, Cash. I was remiss in that.

You know what? I like the cup holders! But I'll save that for another post...
