The New Ohio Theatre: A visit to the New Ohio Theatre in the historic Archive Building
The Ohio Theatre was founded on Wooster Street in Soho in the 1980s and quickly established itself on the downtown theatre scene, commissioning, developing, presenting, and hosting New York’s independent theatre community. Drama Desk nominations, OBIE Awards, Audience First Awards in Edinburgh, Off-Broadway productions, commercial runs, national and international tours, and two Village Voice Obie Awards soon followed. In 2010, the theater moved to Christopher Street as New Ohio Theatre, reestablishing the West Village as a destination for mature, ridiculous, engaged, irreverent, gut-wrenching, frivolous, sophisticated, foolish, and profound theatrical endeavors.
Artistic Director Robert Lyons will give a brief history of the New (and old) Ohio Theatre. Producing Director Marc Stuart Weitz will give a short history of the Archive Building.
