The Theater for the New City has been planning to redesign its 155 First Avenue home since 1986. But funding issues postponed the renovation until?hopefully?now. The Local unveils the proposed redesign. And given that its architect is James Wines, the designer of Shake Shack, perhaps the quirks are unsurprising: "the facade will feature theater seats embellished with coats, umbrellas and programs, as if it's intermission during a show." Cute! The theater plans to request financial assistance for the redo from the Department of Cultural Affairs; if the money comes through, the renovation will begin this summer.
