Greenwich House Theater is located in the historic Greenwich House in Manhattan’s West Village.
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 this way, offering a range of initiatives like the Barrow Street Nursery School.
During the late 1990s, the Drama Dept. Theatre Company produced shows at Greenwich House Theater. In 2003, producers Scott Morfee and Tom Wirtschafter — the founders of the Barrow Street Theatre — took ownership. 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. From early 2019, Ars Nova now produce shows at Greenwich House Theater.
