Stages at The Gordy Theatre

Recommended Posts

The Stages Repertory Theatre plans to move one block down from their existing location. A warehouse that currently sits on the site will receive renovations and undergo an expansion. A parking structure will also be constructed.

My guess is that the theatre got some extra money from somewhere and so were able to do more with this project. The new design looks slick. That's Gensler for ya! Another idea is that the earlier images were simply experiments with the site to see what could be possible with the needs and scope of the project.

They got rid of the surface parking seen in my initial post. Construction to begin Summer 2018.

Stages Repertory Theatre plans to build a $30.5 million theater complex to bolster its position as the city's largest performing arts nonprofit outside of the downtown Theater District — a move to improve not only the company's artistic freedom, but also provide an amenity for the surrounding north Montrose neighborhood.



 

The company wants the 66,850-square-foot proposed building, which features three stages and a two-story parking garage, to be more than a theater.

"We want to change this idea that a performance space opens itself for 90 minutes a night," said Managing Director Mark Folkes "We want to, rather, create a dynamic gathering space, where there can be post-performance open mic cabaret."
