Portsmouth Hall Renovation

The Music Hall in Portsmouth, N.H., will temporarily close this summer for renovation of its upstairs lobby.

The project, estimated to cost $300,000, will add 106 square feet to the area by using a corridor behind the 906-capacity theater.

The work is scheduled to be done between August and September.

In the meantime, the venue will host acts including Ron White, Merle Haggard, Rosanne Cash, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Nellie McKay through mid-July.
