St Ann's Warehouse

Top choice theater in Brooklyn: Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn & Dumbo

This handsome red-brick building, a Civil War–era tobacco warehouse, is the first permanent home of avant-garde performance company St Ann's. The 'warehouse' – a high-tech, flexible 320-seat theater – is ideal for staging genre-bending theater, music, dance and puppet performances.

Past shows and screenings of note include Lou Reed and John Cale’s Songs for Drella, Charlie Kaufman and the Coen Brothers’ Theater of the New Ear, and the Donmar Warehouse and Phyllida Lloyd’s all-female Shakespeare Trilogy.
