Tears of the Wicked and the Virtuous

The pit of a theatre is the one place where the tears of virtuous and wicked men alike are mingled. Denis Diderot

The Show Must Go On has inspired me to review my theatre designs. A noble, famous and distinguished company deserves a venue that will inspire the artistic genii of its players, amply accommodate their skilful, refined and diligent performances, and offer their audiences such pleasure and delight in the stands as they take in the memorable spectacles on the boards. It must house large flats and stage mechaniks as illusion might demand, and lighting of various hues and intensity.
