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