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.

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.
