Time Out says

The Axis Theatre building at One Sheridan Square is soaked in Greenwich Village history. In the 1940s, it was home to the groundbreaking unsegregated jazz nightclub Café Society; in the 1970s, it was the headquarters of Charles Ludlam's outrageous Ridiculous Theatrical Company. Since the late 1990s, it has been occupied by the Axis Company, which specializes in immersive experimental theater.

What’s on

Washington Square

  • Drama

Henry James's poignant 1880 novella about a wealthy young lady, her coldhearted father and a fortune-hunting suitor was the basis of the 1947 hit The Heiress. Now Randy Sharp directs her own new adaptation of the story, which aims to strip away the period trappings to focus on its heroine's inner life. The production is returning for an encore after a well-received run last year.
