In late 2018, the Off-Broadway organization MCC Theater moved into its own permanent home. The complex is located in the Hell's Kitchen area of Manhattan, at West 52nd Street and 10th Avenue, and consists of two theatre spaces. The Newman Mills Theater has a seating capacity of 245, and The Susan and Ronald Frankel Theater is a 100-seat black box-style theatre.
Robert LuPone, Bernard Telsey, and William Canter founded MCC, which stands for Manhattan Class Company, in 1986. The company produced workshops and full productions of new works in various rented spaces around the city before purchasing its current venue.
MCC Theater is closest to the 50th St. subway station on the C and E line; the theatre is located two blocks north and west. The closest bus stop, located across the street from the theatre, is 10 Av./West 53 St. on the M11 line.
Popular restaurants near MCC Theater include Sesamo (Italian/Asian), Il Melograno (Italian), Aqua Boil (seafood), Westville (American), and Gardenia Terrace (Mediterranean). Ardesia Wine Bar is also a popular nearby spot for drinks and snacks.
