Designed by John M. Johansen, one of the famed “Harvard Five,” the structure received the American Institute of Architects highest award in 1972. The theater is described as a “modern sculptural building…like a working circuit board where all the elements work together to create the desired result – a theater complex. All that
is needed are the theater-goers to provide the flow, or power, that completes the communication and lively connection among the building elements of the Mummers Theater and the actors on stage.” (Ambler, NRHP Nomination, 2012). An official Determination of Eligibility for the National Register was signed by the Secretary of the Interior in March 2013.
