Cherry Lane Theater

(Co-Producer) Cherry Lane Theater originally developed Sheila Callaghan’s Lascivious Something in our Obie-Award winning Mentor Project program, and we are thrilled and honored to be collaborating with the Women’s Project to present the play and these artists’ work to New York audiences. A landmark in Greenwich Village’s cultural landscape, Cherry Lane Theatre serves as a vital lab for the development of new American works and the cultivation of a diverse, multigenerational audience.  Our primary focus is the playwright as central to the dramatic event and the text as intrinsic to theatrical innovation and excellence.  As New York City’s longest continuously running Off-Broadway theatre, Cherry Lane has helped to define American drama, fostering theatre that is daring and relevant for 85 years.  Since 1997, our resident company produces under the leadership of Founding Artistic Director Angelina Fiordellisi and Managing Director James King.  Mainstage productions include our Discovery Series, new plays developed within our award-winning programs and our Heritage Series which features groundbreaking off-broadway classics presented at Cherry Lane since 1924.  Our 60-seat Studio Theatre, built in 1998, has been the incubator for hundreds of new plays where CLT Company and guests have developed and produced the work of emerging playwrights.  Our newest space, the 90-seat Cherry Pit, located at 155 bank street, is home to Solo Fest at the Pit, NY Fringe Festival, late-night, alternative and avant-garde programming, as well as a home for Naked Angels and other not-for-profit companies.  Join the Cherry Lane community: support playwriting and the future of American drama.  To sponsor playwrights and productions, please call 212-989-2020 extension 26.  To view our entire production history, visit our website, www.cherrylanetheatre.org.
