Business and Pleasure Merging as Event Spaces Look to Future

I went to buy tickets on Saturday for a November jazz concert in one of the more intimate spaces in the Kennedy Center. Gone are the tables of four—and semi-comfortable chairs—that they were using for years to give the place a jazz-club feel. Instead, judging from the diagram, the stage now juts out into the audience, and there are couches, loveseats, plush chairs and high stools and communal tables filling up the space.
