Bigger, better Abbey to star on same old stage
The Irish Independent
The Abbey Theatre is to stay at its present site despite months of speculation that it was to move to a new location. The building, which also houses the Peacock theatre, is to be knocked down and rebuilt at a cost of around Euro100m. And it will mean that the National Theatre will have to move out of its home at Lower Abbey Street for at least three years while the long-awaited new building is completed.
now…. from my point of view is it worth spending 100 million on this…. the abbey loses money anyway, having a slicker theatre wont cure that… especially when it has the same number of stages… why not move the damed thing to O’Connell Street and help rejuvenate the street
