In 1962, the reverend of St. Clement’s Episcopal Church entered into a rather unusual union of theater and religion that still holds tight today. Modeled after the guild chapels of 16th-century England, this 151-seat Off-Broadway house—which has been home to world premieres like Mamet’s American Buffalo, and companies like the New Group and Red Bull Theatre—still holds regular religious services. On Sundays, an altar is placed on the set of whatever production is currently running, and worship is conducted.
