John Murphy Auditorium setting for Driehaus Prize (2)

You might ask: We can see the exterior walking over from St. James Cathedral. What about interior?

Do not fret! Mr. Driehaus has worked a miracle. He has turned his hard earned money into public art that really asks nothing in return except your enjoyment. This Graham Anderson Probst (Readers, please check that, GAPW did the restoration, but were they the original architects?) structure is truly awesome and noble setting for the Prize.

Update: Per Lynn Becker's fine blog, the Murphy Auditorium was designed by theater architects Marshall and Fox.
