St. James Theatre

 

In 1999, Jujamcyn completed a $3 million restoration, bringing back Beaux-Arts tricks it had uncovered in research: two boxes with fluted Corinthian columns, rich drapery and ornate trompe l’oeil trumpets and garlands, a sounding board that looks like a coffered ceiling and a topping trick that included painted swags and gilded trumpets, and a magnificent crystal chandelier.
