“The best theatre in Manhattan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

IF you want a unique experience in contrast to the extravagance of Broadway. Great way to connect in a theatre and gain a fuller understanding of the human experience. Highly recommended!

“Great experimental theater, beautiful puppets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

We went to watch "Urban Odyssey" at the Ellen Stewart theater. La Mama has multiple theaters, so be sure what address you're going to before you get there. Not only is the show great (both the music and the puppets/dancing) but the neighborhood is great as well. All kinds of places right around the corner to get a bite to eat or just go for a stroll and people watch. If you have nothing to do next weekend, go check this show out. Even if you do, keep your eye out for their productions. It's a NY institution.
