One of the best things about working on Hourspaces is learning about so many interesting things going on in the city. A prime example: the 52nd Street Project. Their stated mission is dedication to the creation and production of new plays for, and often by, kids from 9-18 who live in Hell’s Kitchen. The Project matches kids with mentors, including big names like Edie Falco and Jesse L. Martin, to learn about acting and about the experience of success.
For its first fifteen years, the Project used borrowed spaces for productions and programs, but it now has its own spaces and theater. When it’s not in use by the Project, this 150 seat theater is available for rental by other artists. This flexible, black box theater is complemented by two rehearsal rooms, a full lobby, restrooms, a gallery and terrace, and dressing areas with showers. Full lighting equipment and sound technology are also available for your use.
