A treasured community resource for the State of Connecticut, the Westport Country Playhouse is well-known for its live theater productions. In honor of its 75th Anniversary, the Playhouse embarked on a major restoration of its theater to expand and modernize the original, 200-year old barn to allow year-round programing. This challenging project included the construction of a new enclosure around the original building structure. Improvements to the theater included enhanced sight lines, acoustics, seating, visitor circulation and new mechanical systems. The program also included expanded rehearsal space, dressing rooms, a scheme shop and other ancillary facilities.
