59E59 Theaters, New York City

4.7
59E59 Theaters is theater complex located in New York City, USA that shows both Off-Broadway (in theater A) and Off-Off-Broadway plays (in theaters B and C). It consists of three theater spaces or stages. The complex is owned and operated by the Elysabeth Kleinhans Theatrical Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation that is dedicated to bringing innovative and experimental work to the under-served East Side of Manhattan. Kleinhans is the daughter of the real estate investor Sarah Korein. The theater opened in 2004 with the Primary Stages production of The Stendahl Syndrome.


59E59 presents the New York premieres of Off-Broadway and Off-Off-Broadway productions by not-for-profit companies from across the United States and from around the world. The complex hosts two annual festivals: Brits Off Broadway, which brings new work from British playwrights to New York, and East to Edinburgh, a preview of new plays going to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe from North America. 59E59's inaugural 5A Season began in June 2014 with The Pianist of Willesden Lane. Comprising five productions in Theater A, the season aims to showcase the best new American and international writing.

  • The staff is second to none! The make you feel totally at home! I appreciated this especially because it's been years since I went to the theater and was concerned of being awkward. Every seat in the theater is a great seat! The theatre is small and quaint but very comfortable!
  • I saw The Hello Girls in theater A, I was surprised and thrilled by how small the theater was. I really felt like the action was taking place all around me. The facilities were great and while I didn't get anything at the bar, the selection seemed to be quite surprisingly good. I was really impressed by my experience here overall.
