The building is in good shape, mostly with deferred maintenance outdated systems, but nothing major. LTOB continues to put on plays and the magic on stage buys a lot of forgiveness for the limited services, lack of indoor ADA restrooms and small lobby and concession stand, but certainly the Liberty, a phenomenal Moorish design, could be so much more than it is. I couldn't see any reason not to rehab it and make it what it should be.
Phase 1 was painting the exterior and having people notice the building and boy, do they ever! We did some testing to determine the color history of the exterior and came up with a historically-based design to support the Moorish style T&H chose in 1924. Next up, new restrooms and some lobby areas on the lot to the south, getting rid of the oh-so-lovely Sani-Can and then later a new marquee, some storage and rehearsal spaces, new systems, and more. Stay tuned!
