Culture Project will depart its Mercer Street theater following the run of its current production, Expatriate. The SoHo space, which houses the organizationÃ¯Â¿Â½s main performance venue and offices, has been sold, after efforts on the part of Culture Project to compete for its acquisition. Culture ProjectÃ¯Â¿Â½s fall productions will now be presented at the 199-seat Barrow Street Theatre in the West Village.
The search for a permanent Culture Project home remains ongoing.
