BOX OFFICE SMASH, HIT

Construction equipment digging up the sidewalk

Crews began demolishing the sidewalk outside Miller Auditorium's box office Aug. 2. As part of renovations to three performing arts buildings that began this summer, Miller Auditorium will be expanded by 9,500 square feet, including a new lobby and scene shop, as well as a revamped, 753-seat performance space, two dance studios and an orchestra pit.
