Entry Description

In 2015, Second Stage Theater purchased the landmarked Helen Hayes Theater on Broadway, with a goal of dedicating it to contemporary works of theater by living American playwrights with an emphasis on women and minority writers. Rockwell Group renovated the 100-year-old theater—the smallest on Broadway—to create a modern, approachable design vocabulary that references the Hayes’s heritage as well as Second Stage’s contemporary aesthetic.
