Time Out says

This chic, state-of-the-art venue, which comprises an Off Broadway space and two smaller theaters, is home to a lot of 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.

What’s on

Off Peak

  • Drama

Nance Williamson and Kurt Rhoads, who are married in real life, plays ex-lovers who reconnect—and reopen old wounds—during a chance encounter on a stalled commuter train. Jess Chayes (Jane Anger) directs Brenda Withers's bittersweet play for Westchester's visiting Hudson Stage Company.  

Ye Bear & Ye Cubb

  • Comedy

No script survives, alas, of the first recorded English-language play in North America: William Darby's Ye Bear & Ye Cubb, which was staged in a Virginia tavern in 1665 and so upset at least one audience member that Darby was arrested and tried for public wickedness. This new work, devised collaboratively by No.11 Productions and directed by Ryan Emmons, imagines both the performance and the backlash.
