In 2015, Second Stage Theater purchased the landmarked Hayes Theater on Broadway, with a goal of dedicating it to contemporary works of theater by living American playwrights. After a two-year restoration by Rockwell Group, it reopened again in February 2018. A modern, approachable design vocabulary references the Hayes’s heritage as well as Second Stage’s contemporary aesthetic. The most striking intervention is an immersive transformation of the auditorium, with a handcrafted, pixelated environmental mural.
