Nearly 30 years after it started hosting experimental performances in a loft on the Bowery, this plucky organization has opened its gorgeous new space a few blocks away on the Lower East Side. A lounge, mainstage theater and studio all support the work of emerging artists, including the annual Hot! festival of work with LGBT themes.

Visited this location to see the "Drummers Writing Opera" series. The bar and bathrooms are upstairs where you enter and the actual theater is located downstairs. Very small, maybe 60 seats, the theater offers an intimate experience for all. The band\orchestra were wedged to the left of the stage in a small area with a low ceiling. The acoustics were good and the actors for both operas that evening were spectacular. One of the operas was scored by Stewart Copeland of The Police, who was there to field questions as well. So, for $20 I got to see 2 short operas and meet Stewart Copeland. Only in Dixon Place. Oh, did I mention Narragansett cans for $4?
