A Noise Within

Pasadena, CA

Glendale’s classical repertory company A Noise Within commissioned a 33,000 sf three-story theater built within the footprint of a partially demolished Stuart Pharmaceutical Company, the landmark originally designed by Edward Durell Stone.  The 300-seat theater features 60-foot column-free spans supported by steel trusses, and over 250 feet of catwalk to support lighting fixtures and audio equipment.
