The Tudor building on Huntting Lane in East Hampton called the Playhouse was a gift to the 16-year-old Marjorie Woodhouse from her parents, and held an Elizabethan-style theater.Below, in a stereopticon photograph, formal gardens outside the 1916 Playhouse include original fountains, stone terraces, garden sculptures, and specimen plantings. Above, Richard Brockman and Mirra Bank, the owners, continued its use for the performing arts for a while, offering master classes in music to local students. The space, though preserved, is now a residence.
An original stained-glass window in the Playhouse includes images of the east, west, north, and south winds. Below right, the 70-foot grand salon has cathedral ceilings and tall leaded glass windows. The stage was at one end, and at the other a balcony held a pipe organ. Below left, the building evokes early-20th-century style and life, both indoors and out.
