Today’s NYC is certainly not the city we once knew, and we’re all desperate to find ways to bring it back to its better days. Theater and dining are two of the foundations of our culture, but so is creativity, resilience and a strong survival sense. So it isn’t surprising that the theater industry is stepping in to help restaurants, stores and offices stay safe yet elegant during these challenging times.
Tom Carroll Scenery has been in business for 25 years and is well known for their work on Broadway, experiential events, and window displays. From building props for Mean Girls and School of Rock to custom work for the VIP lounge at the US Open, Tom Carroll Scenery is known for their expertise and professionalism that leaves clients saying “wow” when their work is done.
When the pandemic hit and the theater industry took a nosedive, the company decided to pivot, creating an offshoot called TCS Partition Depot. The company is now helping restaurants get ready for indoor dining by installing sneeze guards and barriers which are there to protect but are also aesthetically pleasing. And now that all-year outdoor dining has been approved, they’ll be helping restaurant owners create safe and beautiful sidewalk cafes as well. Diners will definitely remark on how safe they feel in these beautiful, partitioned spaces.
If you’re a business owner but don’t know where to start, TCS Partition Depot has you covered. With years of experience coming up with creative ways to effectively and elegantly make spaces work, the company’s solutions will ensure that customers and employees will get the critical protection they deserve. The company’s clients includes Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Manhattan Theater Club, Murray Hill Pet Hospital and Dietl International, just to name a few.
The team has experts in woodworking, plastics, aluminum, glass, and more. Choosing what finishes work best for your workspace will be an enjoyable experience.
As experts in custom fabrication and installations, TCS has worked with the top creatives in the entertainment industry, and is well suited to deliver unique and attractive creations to your space. Even if you can’t envision exactly you want, they’ll help you determine the design that will work best for you and your business. And they can build anything from bare-bones to over-the-top extravagant!
Using both plexiglass and polycarbonate (a stronger, more scratch resistant material), TCS can create both permanent and removable structures and hanging overhead installations with any design or logo etched into it. They can apply colored, frosted and textured effects to truly make your space unique. And they can even embed graphics that can only be seen from one side!
Every business owner has faced new challenges since the pandemic hit. The restaurant and theater industries have been hit especially hard, but if the two industries support each other, perhaps they can both see faster revitalizations.
