What a charming and sophisticated place. Tucked into a quiet lane in the West Village. Saw "Everything You Touch" on a snowy afternoon. Brilliant acting. Legacy of top talent and new work. Reasonable ticket prices. Cute restaurant/bar two doors down. Great place for a relaxing and enlightening outing. Hidden treasure -- few tourists -- lots of arts insiders.

Loved this theater, small and intimate. All seats are close to the stage so you can't get a bad seat. Saw "Everything You Touch" and we all enjoyed the play. Very fun thing to do. We had dinner before- there are some great restaurants close by and it was a great evening.

Love the atmosphere of being in this small theater, it feels very intimate and cozy. Enjoy The Brightness of Heaven,just wished it had been a little longer as we wanted to know more about the characters. Many of the lines were thought provoking and funny. The cast was terrific. Talk after the show was an extra bonus, it is wonderful... More

Enjoyed the Brightness of Heaven last night. The studio theater is small and intimate. This show was funny, moving and a clear depiction of Catholic life in the seventies. Fun area for an visit ..good restaurant ,the Commerce right next door. We will watch for up coming plays.

This wonderful play set in Buffalo in the 70's is about an Irish Catholic family during a time of change and how the younger family members are done with secrets and ready to move on with the times. It is the story of deep family love and is thought provoking but also humorous and fun. The set is terrific and... More

The Cherry Lane Theatre has been around for decades. It used to feel like that, but after it's renovation the seats are comfortable and not cramped, and the heating and air conditioning works, All in all a charming Theatre to see off off Broadway plays. Located on a picturesque West Village street.

Attended the Saturday matinee performance of Phoenix at the Cherry Lane Theatre on Commerce Street in the West Village. What a pleasure to see Julia Stiles work through her issues by getting back on stage in this off-, off-Broadway play at the quaint Cherry Lane. Just a short walk from home and yet stimulating to the senses. The magic was... More

This small theatre has excellent productions so it's worth checking to see what might be here. Also, it is located on the beautiful street in the West Village so check out the neighborhood and consider a meal at Little Owl (hard to get in unless you like late, early lunch or early dinner) or consider Commerce (about 3 doors down...

On a recent girls trip to the city, we discovered a favorite comedian would be performing at Cherry Lane. First of all, we loved the village, worth an afternoon alone. Went back at night to this theatre. Not a bad seat in the house. Loved how it was in the middle of a neighborhood.

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
