Theater is about bringing people together — to learn about themselves and the world around them. The design for the Gerding Theater takes this notion one step further by extending the visitor’s experience beyond the proscenium and the walls of the theater to create a deeper, more relevant experience with the art, the building and the activities that take place both inside and outside the performance hall.

To discover the community’s expectations of the project, local design firm The Felt Hat was hired to conduct research and create an “Experience Design” plan. The desire most frequently heard was for an open, stimulating, user-friendly environment and a more interactive relationship between the company, the building and the audience – in contrast to the static, transactional experience typical of most traditional venues. Internationally recognized design consultant Ed Schlossberg further refined this idea by suggesting that the concept of the “proscenium” should extend beyond the confines of the stage, out into the lobby and even onto the street, so that the “theatrical experience” could actually begin the moment the audience encountered the building, rather than waiting until the curtain rose.

A dedicated team of architects, artists and designers have worked together to create a most unusual theatrical experience at the Gerding Theater at the Armory. But what makes it even more unique is that this design also embraces the highest standards of historic preservation and green building design and is imbued with a casual and inviting atmosphere that gives visitors a range of compelling reasons to come inside, to linger and to return time and again.
