 From 13th Street, you’ll enter through our newly painted and landscaped courtyard, with built-in seating along the perimeter, which leads to our upper lobby. This is where our box office is typically set up, but has also served as a small reception space or rehearsal area. You’ll then proceed to the lower lobby via the stairs or elevator. This space has some seating and restrooms, with an area for your guests to hang their coats. The lower lobby leads directly into the theater by way of our ramp, or a couple of stairs. Featuring murals by Eric Okdeh and custom lighting fixtures by Warren Muller, our new space is both cozy and versatile.
