Ad Libs: New M-A theater: It sure beats J Building

Original post made by Rebecca Wallace on Sep 24, 2009

Which is worse: sweltering in a stifling theater, or having a key moment in a play ruined because an old air-conditioning system came roaring on at the wrong moment and drowned out the dialogue?

If you build a $32 million theater, one would hope you could avoid both problems. While giving a press tour of Menlo-Atherton High School's glossy new performing-arts center on Tuesday, principal Matthew Zito was particularly proud of the A/C. He said it's been designed to run no louder than 17 decibels. On behalf of actors everywhere, thank you.

Ah, the view from the gridiron. The new switchboards must be lulus, too. And how's the sound? Was the Circle Star the last new theater around here, or did I miss something?
