Dodger/Stage Holding Will Open New Five-Theater Complex in 2003
Theatrical giant Dodger/Stage Holding is proceeding with plans to renovate a former Loews cinema on the West Side of Manhattan between 50th and 51st streets to create a new theater complex, Variety reported yesterday.
The complex will house five Off-Broadway theaters--two with 499 seats each, two with 400 seats, and the fifth with 299 seats. They will share a central box office located in the complex, which will also include a restaurant. The opening of the complex is projected for September 2003.
