Theater For The New City

Theater for the New City has a radical political reputation and a strong alliance with circus and puppet groups. Young, upcoming playwrights are frequently featured here, and seats are hardscrabble but performances are plucky and enthusiastic. The old East Village still lives here.

The renovated home of the energetic and experimental company of the same name. – In Short
The building is an arts center of four performance spaces, ranging from 50 seats to the 220-seat main auditorium called the Joyce and Seward Johnson Theater. The productions here are hit-and-miss, but the hits are quite impressive. In 1978, Sam Shepard's "Buried Child" made its New York premiere here before going on to win the Pulitzer Prize.

Urban, Open , And Free – I have only seen about four show at the theater, not including the street theater last summer. I must say the price up pay to watch a show does not compare to talent you will see. And not to mention the great people you will meet ......... Thanks to Primy and all his friends for making a Jersey boy feel comfortable.
