Second Stage Theater - Tony Kiser Theater
Founded in 1979 as a company with a mission to produce “second stagings” of contemporary American plays, Second Stage Theater has evolved over the years to also include world premieres, musicals and solo performances to its ever-growing repertoire. 2ST’s main off-Broadway venue is the Tony Kiser Theater. Designed by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and offering a 296-seat capacity, 2ST opened the state-of-the-art venue in 1999. The building was originally constructed in 1929 and had been functioning as a bank.
