The SoHo Playhouse is an off-Broadway theatre in New York that dates back from the late 17th century. Its location, now 15 Van Dam Street, was once the land of colonial mansion Richmond Hill. Richmond HIll served as headquarters for General George Washington and later to Aaron Burr.
The main floor of 15 Van Dam Street was transformed into a theater, which would become SoHo Playhouse in the 1920s. On this stage, works by Terrence McNally, Sam Shephard and AR Gurney have premiered, all directed by Edward Albee.
The SoHo Playhouse will soon be opening a second location in Las Vegas, Nevada.
