Morris Architects Planners

Playhouse on the Square

The Playhouse on the Square was previously using a renovated cinema for their theater performances. They bought a lot across the street that included an abandoned single story building and a five-story office tower. Morris Architects Planners used the area of the single story structure for a new construction theater and fit the majority of the backstage support spaces into the five-story building.The new facility contains a 350-seat proscenium theater, art gal-lery, rehearsal room, scene shop, and an extensive lobby space and roof deck for public gatherings. The theater will be available to arts groups such as Ballet Memphis, the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, Opera Memphis, and Concerts International to use for their more intimate chamber performances.
