Abrons Arts Center

Arts Center in East Village & Lower East Side

This venerable cultural hub has three theaters, the largest being the Playhouse Theater (a national landmark), with its own lobby, fixed seats on a rise, a large, deep stage and good visibility. A mainstay of the downtown Fringe Festival, Abrons Art Center is also your best bet to catch experimental and community productions, as well as art exhibits.

Not afraid of difficult subjects, Abrons sponsors plays, dance and photography exhibits that don't get much play elsewhere.
