The history of theatre is also a history of the structures in which
theatre takes place. In this section, Modern Theatre Online
intends to offer information about many of those physical structures.
We will also include places that were one time venues for a specific
play and not a permanent structure. We intend to have a brief history
of each theatre, with relevant statistics. In addition, we will provide
information about the architects who built (or in some cases, renovated)
Our discussions of the theatres will include both the practical and
esthetic aspects of theatre design.
We will include not only the address of the theatre and the date of its
opening, but also information about the size of the theatre, as well
as name changes, major renovations, and, in some cases, the date of the
closing or destruction of the theatre. There will also be items of
architectural and historical interest.
