Philadelphia Theatre Company, Suzanne Roberts Theatre
In their new drama theatre we designed stepped-down balconies and a seating arrangement that pulls the audience close to the stage. The raked and staggered seats provide plenty of leg room, easy circulation, and excellent sightlines. Ample wing space, dressing rooms, and other support spaces provide excellent performer accommodation and more fluid movement for the production team. With a control room, full fly tower, and state-of-the-art lighting and AV equipment, the company is better equipped to expand their repertoire and take more artistic risks. The theatre’s wave-like walls create exceptional acoustic conditions which supports actors’ natural voices while offering discrete points for integrating lighting and infrastructure. With a three-story, block-long glass façade and prominent signage, the company can boast an eye-catching street presence that matches the excitement of their award-winning productions.
