A cultural landmark since 1924, Cherry Lane Theatre has been a vibrant hub of American theater history. The Downtown Theater movement, The Living Theater, and Theatre of the Absurd all took root here, and famous artists, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, T.S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein, Lorraine Hansberry, Sam Shepard, and Edward Albee, all came through the playhouse. 

Guided by Co-Producing Artistic Directors Seri Lawrence and Janio Marrero, you will tour both the Mainstage and Studio theaters, backstage, and the green room - where all the artists hang out.

Hear the stories, learn the secrets, and experience how the legacy continues.
