About the Company: Cherry Lane Theatre

Cherry Lane provides a nurturing community for playwrights and theater artists, both seasoned and emerging, to work together in revealing the social consciousness of a changed world. In this way, we serve the cultural needs of our larger community of New York City while developing a dedicated, returning audience.

Cherry Lane consists of three distinct theater spaces: The 179-seat Mainstage; the 60-seat Studio Theatre; and the 90-seat Cherry Pit (formerly the Bank Street Theater), which Cherry Lane has recently begun leasing. The three spaces provide unique performance experiences for audience and artist alike - they also allow for myriad programs and plays to occur simultaneously, both from within Cherry Lane's own producing or from its busy rental calendar made up of numerous small to midsize nonprofit companies around New York City.
