This chic, state-of-the-art venue, which comprises an Off Broadway space and two smaller theaters, is home to the Primary Stages company. It’s also home to other worthy programming, such as the annual Brits Off Broadway festival, which imports some of the U.K.’s best work for brief summer runs. The venue boasts three separate playing spaces. Theater A, on the ground floor, seats 196 people; upstairs are the 98-seat Theater B and a 70-seat black-box space, Theater C.
