Stage Center [gone]
Oklahoma City, OK
Stage Center was designed by John M. Johansen and built from 1965-1970. It was originally known as the "Mummers Theater" and was also called the "Oklahoma Theater Center". It consisted of three concrete structures connected by ramps. There were two theaters and a smaller unit which was used for a cabaret, offices, and rehearsal space. The award-winning complex was praised but also mocked for its "tinker toy geometry." Stage Center closed in 1986. It was renovated and reopened in 1992. In 2010, the building was extensively damaged by flooding and it remained vacant after that. In 2014, the building was demolished. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3.
