1,524-seat Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater for Music and Dance
opened Saturday in Chicago's new 24.5-acre Millennium Park. The
three-tiered lobby and adjacent donor's lounge of the 1,524-seat
theater can host 1,560 for a reception. Millennium Park, in the
northwest corner of Grant Park, will offer a music pavilion and
outdoor sculptures when it is completed in summer 2004.
The 1909 Milwaukee Theatre, adjacent to the Wisconsin city's
convention center, reopened Friday after a $42 million restoration.
The multitiered lobby of the 4,100-seat venue offers more than
30,000 square feet for receptions of up to 3,000.
