The key relationship in a theater is between the audience and the production staff. I explored this relationship through a performing arts complex located on Mt. Vernon Square in Washington DC. The two questions that drove the thesis were: How are the spaces occupied by the audience different from those that are occupied by the production staff? What is the architectural impact of the theatre’s structure on the relationship of these two different groups and their spaces?
