First time at this theatre and we couldn't have been more impressed. The setting was so intimate, sitting with our feet on the "stage" we were enthralled by the entire cast's performance including of course Oyelowo in the title role and Craig's Iago. The theatre...More

Ever seen one of those actors who completely disappears into her roles? NEW YORK THEATER WORKSHOP does that. It’s given actors & directors for, at least 30 years, space to experiment & audiences a place at the conversation table. And every time I go to...More

With a small stage in the round, and not a bad seat in the house, a great place to watch a show. It must be trendy since the beer at the makeshift bar was Narragansatt. The show (Hadestown) was very professional and enjoyable. A nice...More

Just saw "Hadestown" here last week, a dynamic retelling of a classic tale. An outstanding production with remarkable talent in the cast, the musical ensemble and the creative parties. The wrap-around seating brings immediacy to the presentation and makes it an immersive experience. This play...More

The theater can always be counted on for way above average shows, but the current show - Hadestown - WOW. All I'll say is if you can't get tickets to Hamilton, try Hadestown - a modern adaptation of Orpheus and Eurydice, done with country music...More

One of my favorite theaters in NYC, located in a great area of the east village with many good meal options. The theater here is always daring, innovative and risky, but with a premium placed on the highest quality off-Broadway acting. Come here for exciting...More

A small, intimate theatre in the East Village/Bowery neighbourhood, with just under 200 seats. I was very fortunate to see a performance of "Lazarus" at the NYTW last week-end. Lots of neighbourhood bars & restaurants in the area for pre/post theatre dinner/drinks.

I recently visited to see Lazarus. The performance was excellent, as was the venue. The staff were really helpful, and the theatre is quite intimate, with the front row very close to the stage for this production. The bathrooms were clean, and the seats in...More

We'd been there a few years ago for a wonderful work in progress event, and were taken with talent and the small venue. This latest visit, we were fortunate to get tickets to Lazarus, which was full of creative excellence at every turn. We loved...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
