Have you ever wondered what goes on inside the walls of the IRT in the summer when we don’t have performances? The building may seem quiet from the outside, but there is a bustle of activity happening as we prepare to greet audiences with a new season in September. Here are a few of the things happening at the IRT this summer:
The Indiana Theatre building that we call home is celebrating 90 years this summer. We are marking the occasion with a few improvements:
