The adventurous theatergoer’s alternative to BAM, St. Ann’s Warehouse offers an eclectic lineup of theater and music; recent shows have included high-level work by the Wooster Group and National Theatre of Scotland. In 2015 it moved to the impressive Tobacco Warehouse, built in the 1870s as an inspection center for tobacco and newly renovated for theatrical use.

St. Ann's is an enormously important institution, and has only grown to be more so a root of exciting, ground-breaking theatre in this city in the last five years.

Courageous in their choice of shows that they present and it's a great place to watch them!

Depending on where you live in NYC, getting to DUMBO can be a shlep. And sometimes, you can feel justifiably irritated by the hypergentrified vibe- the pseudo-boho eateries, the ankle-twisting cobbled streets, the perfect families with four-foot-wide strollers. But swallow that class rage, because St. Ann's Warehouse is in the neighborhood. Actually it's been there for more than a decade, but in Oct 2015 it opened, as reported here, "its first-ever, fully functioning home, a refurbished warehouse in Brooklyn Bridge Park that comes complete with a complex catwalk system, multipurpose theater, courtyard, booze-schilling lobby and more." You can see Mark Rylance there, or all-female Shakespeare from London, or more avant-garde fare from Poland. For those who think that BAM is too timid or institutional, St. Ann's is the *other* Brooklyn alternative.
