AbstractIn this paper, three theaters, including both thrust stage and proscenium arch designs, are evaluated using acoustical measures not yet in common use. The unique characteristics of each theater are considered and include a partially covered orchestra pit and a music shell. A computer model is used to estimate the detrimental effects of excessive ceiling lighting holes.
