Does anyone know if the renovations did indeed include taking out seats in the orchestra ?
I checked the Beacon's website and the seating chart has rows/seats that seemingly are in tact as before. Just curious

Later, Karen

MADISON SQUARE GARDEN ENTERTAINMENT
UNVEILS PLANS FOR $15 MILLION
BEACON THEATRE RESTORATION PROJECT

MSGE To Begin Restoring One Of New York's Most Venerable Historic Buildings

New York, NY (September 9, 2008) - Madison Square Garden Entertainment (MSGE) today unveiled plans for a six month, $15 million restoration project for the venerable Beacon Theatre. MSGE's comprehensive renewal of this beloved New York landmark building will restore the revered venue to its original 1929 grandeur and solidify the commitment MSGE made to New York when it acquired the theatre in November, 2006. The restored Beacon Theatre will join New York's other beloved theatrical venue, Radio City Music Hall, which was fully restored in 1999. The Beacon theatre is targeted to re-open in February 2009.

"The Beacon Theatre is one of New York's most enduring landmarks and as we stated when we acquired the Beacon in 2006, we are committed to using our resources to ensure that all of our venues offer music fans the highest quality of entertainment in an unparalleled setting," said James L. Dolan, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cablevision and Madison Square Garden. "Like our restoration of Radio City Music Hall and our $500 million renovation of Madison Square Garden, our goal with the Beacon is to ensure that the greatest city in the world has the iconic venues it deserves."

The Beacon Theatre, a 2,800-seat venue located at Broadway and 74th street in Manhattan, was the brainchild of the famed theater impresario Samuel "Roxy" Rothafel. In 1927 noted Architect Walter Ahlschlager was commissioned to design the theater, named the "Roxy's Midway", for live vaudeville and silent film presentations. Ahlschlager employed an eclectic mix of styles, including Greek, Roman, Renaissance and Roccoco, in order to provide patrons with a truly unique and exciting experience. Shortly after the theater was completed, it was taken over by Warner Brothers and remodeled to accommodate talking pictures which became all the rage in 1929. It was at this time that the theater was renamed the Warner Brothers Beacon Theatre.

Designated a New York landmark building by the NYC Landmarks Preservation Committee in 1979, the Beacon has become a venerable rock room for generations of New Yorkers and an intimate setting for unforgettable concerts and events. For the past two decades the Beacon has operated as a successful concert venue, hosting the biggest names in entertainment including Rolling Stones, Jerry Garcia, Aerosmith, Michael Jackson, the Allman Brothers Band, Radiohead, and Queen, as well as high profile special events for Senator Hillary Clinton's 60th birthday; Martin Scorsese's film tribute of the Rolling Stones' Beacon performance; the Dalai Lama and President Clinton.

"Since acquiring the Beacon in January of 2007, we have upheld our promise to bring more events than ever to the theatre, with an unprecedented 150 events hosted in the 2007 calendar year," said Jay Marciano, president, MSG Entertainment. "The splendor of the restored Beacon will not only increase fans enjoyment of this unique and intimate room, but also enhance the experience of artists, which will help us continue to grow the business for the benefit of all of New York."

MSGE first announced its intention to restore the Beacon following its acquisition of the theatre in November of 2006. The restoration will focus on all historic interior public spaces of the building. Backstage and back-of-house areas will also be renovated. The restoration will be based on extensive historic research, as well as detailed on site examination of original decorative painting techniques that have been covered by layers of paint for many years.

Key historic areas and features include the restoration of:

- Richly detailed Rotunda Lobby, including restoration of the "scagliola" faux marble wainscot and recreation of the long-lost mural over the entrance doors
- Historic finishes in the lobbies at each theater level.
- Original historic seats and custom, patterned carpet based on the original designs
- Polychromatic, Moorish-inspired "tent-like" main theater ceiling.
- All murals throughout theatre to original design
- Sunburst proscenium valence that runs along perimeter of auditorium ceiling, including renovation of the original back-lit lighting effects
- One-of-a-kind sculptures of animals; masks; urns; statues of Greek martial women, and instruments of war that decorate the sides of the proscenium arch
- Original ornate lighting fixtures and chandeliers
- Richly ornate cornices, ceiling molding and paneling, and marble baseboards
- Decorative elements including pilasters, scrolled brackets and medallions
- Walls and ceilings to their original glazed finish
- Original, thirty foot high Venetian-inspired chandelier and re-activating the original integral lighting effects

Additional theatre improvements include:

- Replacing entire stage flooring
- Acoustic improvements including upgraded sound system and installation of additional speakers
- Upgrade concession stands and renovate public restrooms
- Renovation of all backstage dressing rooms and creating a first-ever star dressing room and Green
Room

Beyer Blinder Belle has been hired to head up the comprehensive restoration project. Founded in 1968, Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners LLP is an international firm that began its practice in the belief that architecture, urban design and planning thrive in the dynamic interaction between past and present. The achievements of this philosophy have been recognized nationally with Presidential Design Awards, the Medal of Honor from the AIA New York Chapter, the national AIA Firm Award and more than 100 other awards for design and planning. Many of the firm's projects involve the stewardship of historic buildings, including New York City's Apollo Theater, Grand Central Terminal, Rockefeller Center and The Morgan Library & Museum (with Renzo Piano Building Workshop).

Jones Lang LaSalle, a financial and professional services firm specializing in real estate services and investment management, has been selected as Project Manager for the Beacon restoration. The company will work closely with MSGE staff to develop and manage the overall strategic plan, master budget and schedule, and assemble the professional team that will carry out the work. Jones Lang LaSalle has also been retained as Project Manager for the $500 million renovation of Madison Square Garden. Renowned firm Lehr has been selected as Construction Manager for the restoration. Lehr is one of the premier interior construction management/general contracting firms in New York.





EDIT: Let's hope that means on the main floor. Between the seating chart and this, we should still keep our fingers crossed.

Got my fingers crossed!!! IMO taking out the seats at this site would end up ruining the character of the venue.

I wonder if this will be the first run without JSBC. End of an era, perhaps.
