This adaptive-reuse remodeling of the 1906 venerable performance venue in Madison returned live performances as the primary function of this unique theater space while maintaining flexibility for changing times and needs of the community. New elements were incorporated using a contemporary aesthetic so as to distinguish from the more historical features of the space, to improve function and safety of the building. A new stage was created and open tiers replaced former theater style fixed seating to allow for flexible programming. The once nearly dormant venue has become a major attractor and has tremendously helped to re-energize the King Street district in downtown Madison, hosting concerts, comedy shows, movie screenings, and a variety of private events.
