Seating at the intimate Greenwich House Theater is split across two levels, the Orchestra and Balcony. The ground-level Orchestra is comprised of ten rows (A-H) with a horizontal aisle between rows F and G. The Balcony has two rows, and the back row is cushioned bench seating. The views from the bench seating are clear but there is less legroom than the Balcony front row AA.
The size of this venue means the view from seat is very good throughout. Seats in the Orchestra are not steeply raked, but each row is offset to ensure a clear view of the stage.
Greenwich House Theater in New York is a small Off-Broadway venue in the heart of Greenwich Village, with a reputation for hosting unique short-run productions and one-person shows. It first opened as a community center and by 1917 began hosting children’s theater productions directed by Helen Murphy such as Americana. In the 1940s, Kirk Douglas expanded the venue’s offering to welcome teens and young adults from the local community.
Helen Murphy passed away in the 1970s, and the venue passed through a number of hands including Sanctuary Theater, Soho Rep and The Drama Dept in the 1990s. During this time, many of Tony Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane’s (The Nance) first plays were produced.
By the turn of the century, the building had been renamed Barrow St Theater, and hosted many hits including Nina Raine’s Tribes, Tracy Letts’ Bug, starring Michael Shannon, and most notably an acclaimed immersive production of Sweeney Todd.
In 2018 Greenwich House Theater re-assumed its original name, and ArtsNova has been its official partner since 2019. The building itself remains a community hub with a nursery, pottery classes, and adult community classes; whilst the theater retains its spirit of innovation and collaboration with a diverse programme of small plays, comedy and musical productions.
