Greenwich House Theater
Located in the historic Greenwich House in Manhattan’s West Village, the Greenwich House Theater is a 199-seat capacity venue. Greenwich House itself first opened on Thanksgiving Day in 1902 as a community centre with a mission to improve the lives of the predominantly immigrant population of the area. To this day, the building still functions as such, offering a range of initiatives like the Barrow Street Nursery School, the After-school and Summer Arts Camp, the Children’s Safety Project, the Senior Health and Consultation Center, the Chemical Dependency and Methadone Maintenance Treatment programs and many more. During the late 1990s, it was home to the Drama Dept. Theatre Company until 2003, when it was leased to producers Scott Morfee and Tom Wirtschafter – the founders of the Barrow Street Theatre. After the closure of the immersive Tooting Arts Club production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street in August 2018, the theatre reverted back to its original name of the Greenwich House Theater, following the departure of the Barrow Street Theatre company. From early 2019, the theater will be home to the Award-winning group known as Ars Nova.
