I didn’t realise that the rebuild of #LaMama after the fire in may 2018 involved a whole new building (even though it was announced a year ago !). Anyway, the #openhousemelbourne video on the topic has the architect #MegWhite (also an actor) giving a bit more detail, that not only the internal staircase, trapdoor, fireplace and all the doors and windows of the original building will be reinstated,and that the second building will house the administration, tickets, and a rehearsal room, but also a lift for level access. The courtyard looks nice too.
