A Plan For An American National Theatre

A new national theatre is being proposed for the site of the World Trade Center. “The national theater would cull the finest offerings from the country’s regional stages and present them in the performing arts center that Daniel Libeskind, the master-plan architect, has called for at the World Trade Center site. The complex would include three theaters: one with 800 seats, one with 700 and one with 400. The backers envision 15 productions a year, five on each stage, each running six weeks.”
