Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater revitalized two acoustically-deficient heritage theatres and added an experimental “cradle” theatre, doubling the company’s previous facilities and spurring development in the surrounding neighbourhood. A primary design concern was the theatres’ proximity to a national airport; performances were regularly disrupted by jets’ noisy takeoffs.
