Founded in 1986, this non-profit experimental theater shows works-in-progress from playwrights, dancers, writers, singers, and performance artists on its two stages. After years of shows in founder Ellie Covan’s downtown living room, the theater moved to this intimate former window factory in February 2009. Show-goers can pick up their tickets at a small wooden box office inset in one the goldenrod walls, which are adorned with rotating artwork exhibitions and wainscoting made from the building’s original floorboards. The ground floor serves as a lounge, complete with full bar and a small stage for low-key readings and acoustic musical acts. Down the stairs—which are inset with a concrete relief of three dancing figures; all permanent artwork is donated by the artists themselves—there’s a state-of-the-art, grown-up version of a black-box theater that seats 130, complete with a Yamaha baby grand piano.
