Proscenium
Sandy, Utah

Scott McQuarrie, a Utah County developer, approached Sandy City in 2006 about building a 2,400-seat Broadway theater southwest of City Hall.  The development was named “The Proscenium”, after the Greek innovation to better frame theater performances.  The announcement created a rivalry between Sandy and Salt Lake City, which had also had plans for a Broadway theater.  Funding for the Proscenium dried up after the credit market tumbled in late 2008.
