The Flea Theater

About: View in admin

The Flea embodies the spirit of adventure and experiment that has defined Off-Off-Broadway since its inception. The Flea is one of the only professional theaters in the city that maintains an open-door policy for artists—a policy that the organization believes is crucial to keeping New York theater vital. Part playground, part laboratory, part training ground, The Flea has been home to established artists taking new risks, emerging artists developing their ideas, and mid-career artists building sustained audiences and identities.
