The Keegan Theatre (1742 Church St NW) is almost ready to debut a new look after 10 months of renovations.
Starting this Saturday, patrons will enter the theater through a new glass and steel atrium, walk up the atrium’s bright staircase and take a seat in one of the new burnt orange chairs to watch the opening of famed Tennessee Williams play, “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”
Apart from the new atrium, the renovation also includes a new lighting grid, dressing rooms, bathrooms and a bar.
“It’s like seeing the light at the end of the tunnel,” said Jeff Klein, media relations manager for Keegan Theater. “We had a lot of obstacles that we overcame. There’s still work to be done in the basement, which we call the artist space, but everything else is pretty much ready to go.”
“Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” runs until July 25. Click here to view the theater’s 2015-16 season.
