ABOUT THE RENOVATION
Two new wheelchair lifts have been installed to provide wheelchair access to the Main Stage theatre on the second floor (Blue Man Group) and the Stage II theatre in the lower level (Shear Madness).
MAIN STAGE THEATRE
The Main Stage theatre where Blue Man Group performs received a major facelift. All of the seats, carpet, and flooring materials were removed, the entrance to the theatre reconfigured to allow for wheelchair access, and new seats and new flooring installed.
LOUNGE & LOBBY
The Lounge was completely demolished and remodeled. The ceiling was raised three feet for more head room and a new bar was installed. The room features all new lighting fixtures, support space, sound system, flat screen LED televisions, furniture, bar equipment, and décor. The main entry vestibule and lobby have also been refreshed and now feature double doors that open directly into the lounge.
BLUE MAN GROUP “LOUNGE-U-LUM”
The renovation of the Lounge area provided Blue Man Group with the unique opportunity to introduce a completely new lobby installation that is contemporaneous with the latest elements of the show. It is the first of its kind within any venue the production performs in. The “Lounge-U-Lum” will bring the audience a tactile experience in the exploration of animated life force. The new design will have electronic instrumentation mixing sophisticated animation with handmade craft, inspiring creativity before the show and well beyond the stage.
The balcony rail was entirely replaced with a new, custom railing that was manufactured specifically for the building to provide greater safety and a better experience for balcony patrons.
The four old, cramped, outdated restrooms were completely demolished and replaced by two large new restrooms with new materials, plumbing, and fixtures. The new restrooms are water and energy efficient and wheelchair accessible.
