Did You Know? “Theatron” refers to more than the fabulous productions created by scores of Baruch students. “Theatron” is an ancient word meaning the space for viewing performances and spectacles. And although there is a scholarly debate about whether early Roman theatres had seats, “theatron” has come to refer to semicircular, tiered, stone seats for viewing performances. Mercifully, Baruch's Theatron lovers enjoyed more comfortable accommodations in the 17 Lex first-floor theatre now known as Mason Hall.
