The Theater Center is off-Broadway theater offering productions, acting classes, and artists’ event spaces.

Our current complex, on 50th and Broadway, opened on April 18th, 2005. It is a 20,000-square-foot state of the art entertainment center consisting of two theaters with a total seating capacity of 398, rehearsal studios, contemporary lobbies, WiFi, two bars with cabaret-style seating and two merchandise stands.

The Theater Center is accessible via the elevator at the 50th Street entrance. All of our theaters and studios are wheelchair accessible.

Both theaters are outfitted with RF Assistive Listening device transmitters. Please let us know at the Box Office or ask a theater representative if you require a receiver or any additional assistance.

HISTORY OF THEATER
In 2005 we began the year-long process of turning this bare-boned 20,000 sqft space into the off-broadway theatre center it is today.

CURRENTLY

The Anne L. Bernstein Theater houses Perfect Crime, the longest-running non-musical play in the history of New York theater.

The Jerry Orbach Theater, named for the actor from Law & Order and the Broadway stage, hosted a long-running revival of The Fantasticks, the world’s longest-running musical. Orbach was an original cast member of The Fantasticks.
 
Now playing in the Jerry Orbach Theater is The Office! A Musical Parody and Friends! A Musical Parody keeping audiences on their toes while paying homage to the popular sitcoms.
 

We also offer acting classes through the Russell Acting Studio and Act & Sip.  The Russell Acting Studio caters to everyone from beginners to working professionals. Act & Sip is perfect for bachelorette parties, after work outings, corporate events, or just a fun night with friends to get on stage with a little help from liquid courage.
