Went to see Kate Hamil's brilliant new adaptation of Pride and Prejudice at this cool theater. Established by Edna St. Millay to support innovative new plays, this theater consistently puts on high quality plays by recognized play writes. Plus the location in the West Village...More

A very nice quaint theater in the heart of Greenwich Village With a long history dating back to 1924. F. Scott Fitzgerald, T.S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein and others have been on this stage.

Small quaint theater in the heart of the Village, nice extremely helpful staff. Only 60-80 seats. Melissa Gilbert currently performing in If Only until September 17th, try to catch it before it ends.

We have been here several times, most recently to see Horton Foote's A Traveling Lady. There are no bad seats and the acting and production are first rate. Tickets can be purchased through TKTS, which can mean substantial savings. Afterwards slip down the block to...More

I just saw The Traveling Lady and it was extraordinary. The theater is small, the staff very polite, the only drawback is it's a good walk from the train station and I easily get lost in the village.

Saw Crashlight (which was so good that I'm told very performance sold out and another was added toward the end of the run) and loved it. The theatre itself was a much appreciated blend of historical and still very comfortable. Would see other shows there...More

After a fairly unpleasant Broadway experience (not the show itself just dealing with midtown and rude staff) this was a breath of fresh air... It is an adorable small Theatre tucked away on a lovely corner of West village. The production quality is excellent and...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
