Site Visit - Shakespeare Theater's Sidney Harman Hall

The other day I had the opportunity to visit the Sidney Harman Hall located in the 19th century neighborhood of Penn Quarter.  The venue is just steps from Capitol attractions like the National Mall and the National Gallery of Art. The Orchestra and Mezzanine lobby areas are stunning open spaces with glass walls looking out over the Verizon Center. Both areas also have built in bars and flat screen TVs that are perfect to display video clips of the bride and groom.  They even have cool show listing signs outside the theater that can be changed to welcome guests or have pictures of the newlyweds. 

This space would be ideal for 150 guests where you could have cocktails on the Orchestra level, a seated dinner on the Mezzanine level, and then back to Orchestra for dancing, lounge space and of course the wedding cake. 

Here are some images I took. They were setting up props that day so disregard the armor. 

One of my favorite local photographers, Kate Triano, shot a stunning wedding there in 2008. Below are some of her images.
