Transforming Open Space into a Stage - The Lehman Trilogy at Park Avenue Armory

It’s no easy task to transform a wide open, cavernous space into a captivating, all engrossing theatrical environment. With a little help from Rose Brand, the magicians at Park Avenue Armory did it for the critically acclaimed production of “The Lehman Trilogy.”

How do you build a theatre from scratch in the massive Wade Thompson Drill Hall? Start by creating a full proscenium with nearly an acre of masking curtains of Black Encore Velour, hung on 150’ long Custom Curved Pipes, and stiffened by Custom Stretcher Frames. The beautiful and haunting images created by the designers are projected on a huge Premium Projection Screen also installed on custom curved top and bottom pipes.
