This tiny, 45-seat basement space vibrates with the energy of punky St. Marks Place, especially when one of the shows decides to open up the Beer Pantry (for real!) and avail itself of the space's brand-new liquor license. Folding chairs, a bathroom that's basically backstage and creaky wooden risers complete the picture of a perfectly downtown space that hasn't sold out to the Man. Recently, the hit show MilkMilkLemonade wreaked merry havoc here.

Welcome to where 1 out of 5 New York actors are #livingthedream. The epitome of off-off-Broadway: scrappy, a little dirty, and literally underground. If you're willing to forgo the comforts and luxury of Times Square theatres, you're guaranteed to see something here that you won't see anywhere else. Also a frequent venue for festivals such as New York Fringe and Frigid.
