Authors, artists and amateurs take the stage in Gramercy Park. – In the Space
The 299-seat, largely unadorned main space at the Century Center for the Performing Arts provides the kind of tight, one-room intimacy unmatched by most off-Broadway houses. The smaller space--which houses off-off-Broadway productions--is really just a rental hall that is used for plays. Seats here are not fixed and are arranged differently from production to production.

The Century's History
The historic building, designed by Henry Hobson Richardson, served as the first home for the Century Club (now the Century Association on West 43rd Street). It was incorporated in 1851 with the idea that it should be reserved for "authors, artists and amateurs of letters and fine arts." Over the years, Century members have included presidents Teddy Roosevelt, FDR and Woodrow Wilson, as well as luminaries such as Mark Twain, John Jacob Astor, Winslow Homer and the young Winston Churchill.
