One of my favorite theaters in NYC, located in a great area of the east village with many good meal options. The theater here is always daring, innovative and risky, but with a premium placed on the highest quality off-Broadway acting. Come here for exciting contemporary work!

A small, intimate theatre in the East Village/Bowery neighbourhood, with just under 200 seats. I was very fortunate to see a performance of "Lazarus" at the NYTW last week-end. Lots of neighbourhood bars & restaurants in the area for pre/post theatre dinner/drinks.

I recently visited to see Lazarus. The performance was excellent, as was the venue. The staff were really helpful, and the theatre is quite intimate, with the front row very close to the stage for this production. The bathrooms were clean, and the seats in the theatre were very spacious (I had been shopping on the way and there was... More

We'd been there a few years ago for a wonderful work in progress event, and were taken with talent and the small venue. This latest visit, we were fortunate to get tickets to Lazarus, which was full of creative excellence at every turn. We loved the show. The theater holds about 200 people. Very intimate. And its location in the... More

The New York Theatre Workshop is a nice cozy, small venue for local plays and performances. My wife and I saw an excellent reading of a play called 'Greenwood: An American Dream Destroyed'. The seats in the theatre were very comfortable and they did a good job with the lighting and sound!

Just saw this drama, ironically after visiting the 9/11 museum. The first 2/3 of the play were well done, the ending is a bit too much unicorns and rainbows for my liking. The set design was awesome, the theater warm and friendly. Great off Broadway experience.

Today we saw "Scenes from a Marriage" in a new production by the New York Theater Workshop and were amazed by the wonderful and talented troupe of actors in a fresh, new presentation of the Bergman classic from the 1970's. The play was riveting, the emotions raw, and the lessons heartbreaking. NYTW consistently produces quality theater.

I recently saw "Scenes from a Marriage". As another reviewer pointed out, the staging was unusual, but in my eyes, it completely worked with the amazing cast that brought the play to life. Even 2 weeks after, when I describe this play, the performers and the set, I still feel all the raw emotions and power of the words and... More

We saw Ivo Van Hove's reworking of Scenes From a Marriage. The production was not without flaws but it was done and a rather interesting way that made us want to go back and see more of what this Off Broadway theater whose mission is to put on relatively new productions has to offer.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
