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.

My wife and I went to the NYTW for the first time last night to see Bacharach Reimagined. The show was tremendous, and the theater even better. What a cool intimate place. Every seat is like sitting in the best seat in the house. A small warm place, with a very pleasant staff. Sorry this is the first time we... More

The Saturday matinee on December 21, 2013 was excellent; Kyle Riabko and the cast had the perfect presence and voices for the creative rearranging of Bacharach's wonderful music; the production had gentleness and softness and emotional quality as well as the energetic interpretation of some of the songs - the lighting and scene production was great. Bacharach music is STILL... More

I am a big fan of the New York Theater Workshop. The theater is tiny and the productions are often new and/or experimental. The acting is always top notch and the intimate surroundings make it a special experience. Many of their shows go on to Broadway runs ("Rent", "Once", "Peter and the Starcatchers" for example), where you get to pay... More

Saw "Once the Musical" at the New York Theater Workshop, a show now moving to Broadway. The theater itself is tucked away in the East Village and casts a great show. Can't wait to see this one again when it opens next month!

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.
