Astor Place Theater
New York, USA
Old World meets New at the Astor Place Theater. One of New York’s oldest surviving buildings, the Greek Revival-style structure on Colonnade Row was originally home to the Astor and Vanderbilt families. Today, the imposing marble columns front one of the city’s most important Off-Broadway venues.
With a history of introducing new playwrights to the city, and a series of important premieres by newcomers and established writers alike, Astor Place became home to the experimental Blue Man Group in 1991.
