Classic Stage Company

136 East 13th Street, New York, NY, 10003


Founded in 1967, Classic Stage Company (also known as CSC) is located in the heart of Manhattan’s East Village close to Union Square. CSC produces revivals and reimaginings of classical plays and musicals for contemporary audiences, which often relate to current issues.

The company's first venue was a 100-seat theatre within Rutgers Presbyterian Church, and it moved to its current venue, a former carriage house, in 1973. The 199-seat theatre has a thrust stage with audiences seated on three sides of the performance space.

In January 2019, the Off-Broadway home of Classic Stage Company was renamed the Lynn F. Angelson Theater in honor of Lynn F. Angelson, a longstanding board chair.
