Theater Description:

Abrons Arts Center

The Abrons Arts Center is the performing and visual arts program of Henry Street Settlement. It mounts exhibitions and productions in music, dance and theater and provides arts training for children and adults.

The facility links the 350-seat proscenium Playhouse, originally constructed as the Neighborhood Playhouse by philanthropists Alice Lewisohn and Irene Lewisohn in 1915 to the main art center building, which opened in 1975. The development added a black box theater, an underground recital hall, and an outdoor amphitheater facing Grand Street. Visual arts exhibitions are mounted in the Abrons Main Gallery and the ground-floor Culpeper Gallery. The second floor of Abrons is a shared artist studio space, and classrooms and dance studios are located on all floors for arts training and instruction.
