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.

Small, homey off-Broadway theater in the Village. Saw a great 4-person play--the acting was excellent.

Small, intimate theater where you can enjoy great actors (at a moderate prices). I loved Psycho Therapy. You can wander around the lovely neighborhood before and after the play.

A neat theatre to visit and enjoy a show in a great neighborhood. Psycho Therapy was fantastic and I would see it again! Guaranteed to make you laugh! Hats off to the cast/crew.

I always try to go to one show in NYC whenever I visit. My husband and I decided to spend all of our trip in one area of the city and therefore went to see Psycho Therapy at the Cherry Lane Theater. The theater appears to be recently renovated and the play we saw was one of the best we... More

The Cherry Lane Theater started in Greenwich Village to showcase emerging playwrights and actors. It did so for decades, and is back in operation after a major renovation. The updates include new seats, lighting, heating and other systems which make this theater a wonderfully intimate place to see a play.

What a perfect evening in the city...2+ hours of laughter at 'Nunsense' and outstanding food at 'Palma Restaurant'. Greenwich is my favorite NYC neighborhood. I'm certain if we lived here, we would be season ticket holders at this awesome little theater. If you're looking for bright lights, major productions, and big crowds this is not the theater for you...this is... More
