Theater Company Ars Nova Finds New Home in Greenwich Village

Following a year-long search, Ars Nova has been selected by Greenwich House as their new partner and operator of the historic, 199-seat Greenwich House Theater located on the ground floor of Greenwich House’s 27 Barrow Street building. In addition to operating and filling the beloved venue with new work by its emerging artists, Ars Nova will work with Greenwich House on new community engagement and educational initiatives that will deepen the mission of both non-profit organizations.

Ars Nova will occupy the Greenwich House Theater beginning in early 2019. The stage will become the primary venue for Ars Nova’s award-winning, Off-Broadway premiere productions. The move allows Ars Nova to expose its emerging artists to a growing audience base, increases the technical capabilities of its home theater to keep pace with the big dreams of its world premiere artists, and fully dedicate its current theater on 54th Street to the discovery and development of new talent. 

“Ars Nova is thrilled to have been selected to operate the Greenwich House Theater, which will become our new home base for our Off-Broadway premieres,” said Jason Eagan, the Founding Artistic Director of Ars Nova. “This will, in turn, stimulate our work of discovering and developing talent by freeing up space in our own jewel-box theater on 54th Street, where we will be able to increase our services to our artist community and expand our year-round programming. At the same time, this mission-driven partnership gives us an ideal platform to partner on arts education initiatives. Together, Ars Nova and Greenwich House can ensure that our resources are used to launch the careers of extraordinarily deserving early-career artists; as well as foster and develop arts appreciation and aspiration among the youngest of our next generation.”
