THEATRE DETAILS:

The building's exterior was designed by noted New York artist Greg Hill, whose designs can be seen throughout Broadway's theatre district.

"Just Imagine" by Graham Lane, is the newest corporate art work at New Theatre Restaurant and is displayed at the front entrance. This piece of art initiates the guests to the "human for" sculptures that are presented throughout the theatre. Designed to spark the imagination of the guests, the creative interplay between artist and observers begins at the door and encourages participation throughout the guests' visit.

The theatre's interior was also created by Greg Hill in tandem with the renowned architectural firm of Fullerton, Carey, Oman and Alexander. The lobby has a series of four ceiling bays each with different neon art and "human sculptures." Coat room facilities and restrooms are located in the lobby area.

The Box Office, in the lobby area, provides advance ticket sales and information as well as performance ticket pickup service. Entrances to the theatre from the lobby are through walkways with built-in video monitors offering both entertainment and performance trivia that relates to the current show.

The theatre seats 617 persons in comfort. Tables are suspended by wall brackets allowing maximum leg room. The fan-shaped seating area provides clear direct stage viewing. Whimsical "human sculptures" above each entry and in "opera boxes" provide a festive atmosphere. More than 1200 tiny colored lights, designed into art deco chevrons, cross the ceiling. Walkway area and stairs have indirect tivoli lights, allowing excellent visibility when the house lights are darkened for performance.
