An interesting article (replete with graphics) in today's New York Times chronicles the beginnings of renovation to the LaSalle Bank Theatre, formerly known as the Shubert. The theater will reopen in the fall, and, after the $36m project is complete next spring, the Majestic Building will also feature seventeen stories of Hampton Inn hotel space.
