View theatre details
Presencia is a tender and comedic millennial music theater piece that reshapes the Moses story for women of color grappling with the hazards and challenges of leadership, told with Bible-fan-fiction vibes, varying degrees of reverence and satire and a vibrant anthemic musical score rooted in jazz/R&B. When a succulent plant bursts into flames and tells fitness instructor Presencia it's the god of her ancestors, she must decide what to do… Sometimes liberation must be practiced at the smallest scale. Expect miracles, magic, divine feminine energy and the healing power of presence and intuition in this ultimately joyous new piece of music theater. Presented by The Bushwick Starr, produced in association with ¡Oye! Group and The Sol Project with support from Musical Theatre Factory.

Wheelchair Info

Although the building is unfortunately not ADA-compliant (it was built in the mid-1800s), the theater is on ground level and we have a secondary entrance that is wheelchair accessible (no steps). Look for the easternmost door of the building, with the small sign that says “Theater” over it. This door is usually locked, so you will need to request access from the front of house staff.


None available

Restrooms are accessible without stairs, however there are no wide stalls. If you use a mobility device that requires a wider stall, we have made arrangements with The Cabin NYC, a bar across the street (205 E. 4th St.), for our patrons with accessibility needs to use their bathroom.
