Company History

Landry & Bogan, Incorporated is the evolutionary development of the theatre consulting practice begun by Paul Landry in 1965. From the beginning, our fundamental goal has been to help theatre users identify and prioritize their functional needs and to know the technology to meet those needs in the most efficient and economical ways.

We have developed a range of techniques appropriate to planning theatres of all types and sizes. In all cases, our goal is to assist the client and the architect in the design of a physical structure which will fully support the client's performance and production goals. Our background includes extensive hands-on theatrical design & production work, administration, and university-level teaching for all types of theatrical productions generated at professional, regional, university, and community theatre settings. In practice, this means that recommendations about both production and support spaces are made with a first-hand knowledge of their ramifications. In addition, our experience has given us close contact with construction costs, time requirements, and problems implicit in various performing arts building solutions. We have specialized knowledge of building codes applicable to places of assembly; control rooms, orchestra pits and other theatrical spaces.  We have written a considerable body of software to increase our flexibility and shorten response time in seating layouts, sightline design and lighting analysis.

The principals of the firm have been working together for over 20 years; Jack Bogan, Heather McAvoy and Rose Steele have worked on over 200 projects together, resulting in more than 100 constructed or renovated performance spaces. In 2009 Jack Bogan retired from full time theater-consulting, but continues to provide his services to the firm on a part time basis and Landry & Bogan is now a 100% woman-owned firm with Heather McAvoy and Rose Steele as the majority shareholders
