Located on the North side of Eddy between Taylor & Mason, a block from the Powell St. BART Station, this is the 36-seat, true black box space of the Eddy Street Theatreplex that also houses EXIT Theatre, EXIT Stage Left and EXIT Café. The EXIT Studio is street level and wheel-chair accessible.
With curtains in full use, playing space is approximately 17′ wide by 12′ 10″ deep. There is no wing space but there is a back stage with two doors, one Stage Left, and one slightly Stage Right of center. On travelers, the curtains can be manipulated to change these dimensions and expose the bare black wall and doors.
There is no fly-space, though lightweight items (no more than 25 lbs.) may be dead hung from the light grid above the stage. While the floor is wood, all walls are either sheet rock or lathe and plaster, so attachments are limited. You may not hang items or compromise the stage in any way without prior approval.
Dressing Room and Storage
Dressing Room Holds 2-4 comfortably and is located off USL. This room can be entered through the Ante Room, the common hallway, or direct from Stage and basically comprises the backstage area. The room provids basics such as prop tables and ample mirror and counter space but no additional amenities. There are no private restrooms or sinks backstage, so performers share general washroom facilities with patrons and EXIT performers. There is no monitor system, but stage noise can be heard in the dressing room.
The booth is located within the house on the top seating riser with a full view of the stage.
Sound: (2) CD players and a 8 channel Behringer mixing board allowing for cross fades plus live mic hook-up or instrument amplification. Again, please contact me well before your tech to deal with feasibility issues. There are 2 speakers dead-hung from the lighting grid at the back of the stage that allow isolation left and right through the amp.
Lights: The board is a Leprecon 12 channel MANUAL 2 scene preset. Cues may be cross-faded manually or run as internals. There is an independent channel, add/bump buttons and a chaser. The house lights are on a separate dimmer next to the board.
