Town Stages Opens in New York City
The new female-led event and performance space promises to offer an artistic home to New York City creators.
BY AMERICAN THEATRE EDITORS
NEW YORK CITY: Town Stages has opened in the neighborhood of Tribeca in lower Manhattan. The new 9,000-square-foot storefront facility includes a mainstage theatre, a cabaret lounge, and a multi-use event space.
This flexible performance and event space is led by a female-driven team, spearheaded by executive director Robin Sokoloff. The new venue is an extension of Sokoloff's Loft227, a creative space in midtown Manhattan that served local artists and innovators for the past five years.
“As artists, we spend nearly every waking hour of our lives in studios, on sets, in theatres, and in venues of all kinds,” said Sokoloff in a statement. “These are the places we convene and collaborate, grow, and transform. They are where we lift each other up, and where we make room for new voices and new perspectives. For many, these unique spaces are where we build our chosen families. In more ways than one, these cherished places are our homes.” READ MORE ->
