The renovation of the Terrace Theater was recently featured in an article by music critic Ann Midgette, for the Washington Post. In the article, Surround sound made visible: the new Terrace Theater, the author shares excerpts from an interview conducted with Deborah Rutter, President of the Kennedy Center and Leora Mirvish, Principal at Quinn Evans Architects.  

In general, the space seems more warm and vivid, with a clarity — and good sightlines — from every corner of the room.

According to a recent post by Quinn Evans Architects, “The popular theater—the Kennedy Center’s busiest venue—has been transformed to improve functionality, support a broader range of programming, improve accessibility, and enhance the theater experience for guests.” 

"The prime mandate was “acoustics,” says Leora Mirvish, the architect who supervised the Eisenhower Theater renovation in 2008 and now the new Terrace."
