Ars Nova Theater

Map & Directions 511 W. 54th St.
New York, NY 10019


Village Voice's Description

Luxury high-rises are popping up all around the formerly gritty Hell's Kitchen neighborhood, but don't let that fool you. Ars Nova Theater is still consistently young, experimental, and bawdy to-boot. Created in 2002, the small but sleekly renovated theater boasts its status as a "hub for new talent," hosting a bevy of young playwrights and comedians in their artists-in-residence program. Seating varies from tradition non-elevated rows to bar tables with stools. Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres are available in designated areas, Although the close proximity to Restaurant Row means there's no lack of food and alcohol nearby. Most subway lines are accessible from Times Square.

Tips from foursquare

    Become a Super Nova (it's totally free) and you get a free drink any time you come see a show.

  • The Corcoran Group on 01/23/12

    A true gem tucked a bit far away from the lights of broadway, but where you can see many an up-and-coming star. The comedy and out-of-the-box shows are excellent.

  • Devon W. on 07/22/10

    Become a Super Nova and get a free drink at every show. Then grab a flyer at the bar, good for a free drink at Bar Nine post-show!

  • Camp Broadway on 04/23/12

    Really fun, hip performances for a family with older teens and a desire to find "off the beaten path" theatre.

  • Megan E. on 02/03/12

    The best black box theater in NYC. Whether you like music, theater, or comedy, this is the place to try for an authentic New York experience.
