  • I came here to watch Actually, We're F*****. The theater is cozy and small, but comfortable and I'm convinced there's not a bad seat in the house. The play itself was interesting; I would describe it as a drama with social issues touched upon in it. The actors and actresses were pretty good, and they have student rush tickets for the shows here! $22 total and they're sold an hour before curtain time. Not a bad theater, would recommend!
  • Beautiful location and intimate little theatre with unique productions. Perfect exterior for photographers and urban explorers; or tourists in search of a pristine example of quintessential “Old New York”
