The imaginative, glass-walled lobby areas seem to brings the building out to the flow of Broadway outside, and bring that world inside. It's all very cool and chic, without looking pretentious. As for the interior performance space of the 1,100-seat theater, that struck me as quite welcoming, too. The walls, covered with a thin veneer of lit-by-LED-from-within moabi wood, offer visual appeal. (The first applause heard last night was for the hall itself, when, after the house lights dimmed, the elegant effect of those walls registered on the crowd.) A colleague reminded me of some odd dividers used in the seating area previously; all is smoothly and sensibly arranged now.
