Built in 1888, the 2-story former bakery building will be repositioned as a 307-seat theater equipped with a café and bar area called theRep at Livingstone Square (theRep). Upon completion, theRep will become the new home of The Capital Repertory Theater Company (CapRep) and mark a new era for the theatre and for the community. theRep will produce numerous educational, outreach and job training programs that are a key component of its owners’ mission, all while producing a year-round season of professional theatre.
