The Past, Present & Future of East 4th Street:
Downtown Theater Row

Straddling Vaudeville venues on Bowery and Yiddish Theatre on 2nd Avenue, E. 4th has been a home for the arts since before Broadway was Broadway. Over time East 4th Street became an incubator for avant-garde work and cultivated artists ranging from Sam Shepard and Harvey Fierstein to Lisa Kron and Blue Man Group. Today East 4th Street remains a downtown destination for emerging theater and dance, while developing the first official cultural district in Manhattan.

Join us for a tour, lecture & conversation with Fourth Arts Block and Lower East Side History Project about what was, what is, and what will be happening on East 4th Street.

This event is presented jointly by Fourth Arts Block, Village Preservation, and the Lower East Side History Project.
