West Side YMCA

Majorie S. Deane Little Theater

The Little Theater at the West Side YMCA on West 63rd St. in Manhattan had fallen into disrepair before the Deane family stepped forward to fund its renovation. When FDA and Mitchell Kurtz collaborated for its rehabilitation, they added a bank of 141 fixed seats in curved rows and designed much- needed upgrades to the performance equipment. The renovation includes the addition of a brand new control booth as well as thoughtful reworking of the adjacent support spaces and box office. FDA worked closely with the client’s representatives and the architect to develop a classically appointed but tastefully modern design that fits right in with the building’s historic architecture.
