There was an official groundbreaking for the Theater for a New Audience in the BAM Cultural District this morning, even though construction started up on the future 299-seat venue earlier this week. There’s a permit in place for a four-story, 61-foot building on the Rockwell Place site, but the only rendering that’s been released is more than a year old. The city will be releasing more information and renderings later this afternoon, so check back here for updates as they come in. Update: Renderings for the theater are now live. Check out a few more, including a picture of the groundbreaking, after the jump. The TFNA also has this to say about its new space: “Acclaimed theatre architect Hugh Hardy has designed Theatre for a New Audience’s first home in the BAM Cultural District. Our home will be a 27,500 square-foot, sustainable “green” building, both elegant and efficient…. The design of our Mainstage is inspired by the Cottlesloe Theatre of Britain’s Royal National, a gorgeous, hardworking playhouse.” Construction should last until April 2013, with the first season slated for the spring of 2013.
