East Village Building Blocks

Guided Tour : Off-Off Broadway Theaters

The East Village has been fertile ground for theatrical innovation since the beginning of the 20th century. Off-Off Broadway productions began in the East Village as an anti-commercial and experimental or avant-garde movement of drama and theatre. Today the neighborhood continues to grow as an incubator for theatrical innovators and iconoclasts. This tour of current and former theatres gives a comprehensive view of the theatrical homes of the experimental movement.
