The Town Hall was built by the League for Political Education, whose fight for passage of the 19th Amendment (women's suffrage) led them 2 build a meeting space where ppl of every rank & station could be educated on the important issues of the day (dope). As the space was designed to reflect the democratic principles of the League, box seats were not included in the theater's design. This design principle gave birth to The Town Hall's long-standing mantra: "Not a bad seat in the house."
P.S. - During completion of the building the 19th Amendment was passed (women's right to vote), & on January 12, 1921 The Town Hall opened its doors & took on a double meaning: as a symbol of the victory sought by its founders, & as a spark for a new, more optimistic climate.
