We remember 9/11
In 2001, we were a new theater is full swing. We weathered that traumatic day and remained put in the aftermath, responding with a show called THE GUYS that captured the hearts and minds of New Yorkers and brought an audience back downtown where we were all seeking condolence and healing.
Since that time, we’ve grown from a scrappy group of artists into a dynamic company with over 10 staff members, 120 Bats, 500 donors and 15,000 audience members who make it all happen. Much has changed since 1996, but we will never grow out of our home turf.
The final season at 41 White Street is in full swing and we hope you join us for our last hurrah this fall. From our recent extension of THE TROJAN WOMEN to the upcoming festival celebrating our favorite playwright, A.R. Gurney, and of course SERIALS, there are many reasons to join in on the festivities.
Once we move, we’ll still be The Flea — daring, edgy, a little bit irreverent — but in a building better suited for our growing company and our growing audience. Three new theaters, new outdoor space, new lobbies and bathrooms and much needed backstage space on an otherwise deserted block in Lower Manhattan. Only four blocks south of our current location.
From here on out, you will be hearing a lot more about our new digs at 20 Thomas Street, from conception to execution and everything in between.
This photo below was taken from our new rooftop. We feel very lucky to call this neighborhood home, and will continue to raise a joyful hell, especially when the world seems an uncertain and tumultuous place.
Thank you, as always, for being a part of our community of artists and aficionados.
