Theater Planning

Nextstage Design is pleased to announce the publication of Theater Planning by cofounder Gene Leitermann. This new book was developed out of the planning courses Gene teaches at Yale School of Drama and is informed by his more than 30 years of professional practice. It provides an up-to-date, detailed, and coherent introduction to North American theater planning and design practice. Part I describes the process of designing and building for the performing arts and live entertainment, while Part II details the technical requirements of these special buildings. Extensive line drawings illustrate each concept and provide a valuable reference not previously available.
