DESCRIPTION

The new 20,000 square foot Chesapeake Shakespeare Theater is designed as a modern globe with 250 seats on three levels surrounding a thrust stage. The design incorporates many of the building’s existing historic architectural elements including the intricately carved coffered ceiling and Corinthian columns, while delicately inserting a steel structure to support the mezzanine and new third floor balcony.
