Reviewed 3 April 2013

A very comfortable theatre in the round and a theatre company that is not afraid to try something new each year

“Thrust this”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

When the right play is running, this is a great "thrust stage"that puts the action in a 360ª world. The view isn't flat, like a movie screen. It's not a place where actors can "cheat" movements. It's ALL out there. So again for the right play, it;s pretty wonderful. For other good plays, it can be a distraction.

“Godspell”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

I had seen no less than 8 different productions of Godspell in my lifetime. The limited engagement at this theatre was by far THE BEST!

As for the theatre itself, there are no bad seats. It's an "in the round" set-up, small. Leg room compared to other Broadway theatres these days was comfortable.

“An old work horse...”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

Has been around for a long time which in itself it's
amazing considering that in New York most places
come and go in a New York minute.
DO visit if you have extra time and need to relax for a while.
