New Studio Gang Designed Writers Theater Breaks Ground

On Tuesday, members of the Writers Theater's leadership and Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects broke ground on the new Writers Theater facility in suburban Glencoe. The $31 million project will feature two performance spaces, a rehearsal room and a rooftop terrace and garden. In total, the facility will provide 36,000 square feet of space, with the main theater making room for 250 seats, and a smaller performance space will provide seating for 50-99 attendees. The new center will be made of wood, glass and plaster and will blend with its outdoor surrounding, going for a "Theatre in a Park" vibe, according to the Writers Theater. Construction will continue through next year and will wrap up in time for a 2016 opening.
