This tour is only for students in grades 5-8, accompanied by an adult.
Join us for our inaugural family-friendly Building of the Day tour! Guided by a CFA Design Educator and a Rockwell Group architect, families will learn about this unique theater, discovering its historic and contemporary significance as Broadway’s littlest theater!
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 speaks to the Hayes’s heritage as well as Second Stage’s contemporary aesthetic. The most striking feature of the redesign is the transformation of the auditorium with a handcrafted, pixelated environmental mural.
PLEASE NOTE: All adults and children must have a ticket of their own. The precise meeting location will be distributed the day before the tour.
A program of Archtober 2018. See the full events lineup at archtober.org. See all Buildings of the Day here.
