The Encounter

Until January 8, 2017

Employing state of the art sound technology, one man show The Encounter takes you deep into the Brazilian rainforest, and into the homes of the Mayoruna tribe. Created by and starring Simon McBurney, this startling original work conveys most of its action through special headphones that are given to every audience member. Rapturously received in London and Edinburgh, The Encounter is unlike anything you've experienced before.

The Glass Menagerie

February 7-July 2, 2017

Academy Award winner Sally Field and two-time Tony recipient Joe Mantello are set to star in a new revival of Tennessee Williams' celebrated drama, The Glass Menagerie in spring 2017. Tony Award-winning director Sam Gold (2015's Fun Home) takes the helm for this production, which he first directed with Toneelgroep Amsterdam to critical acclaim; he will also be bringing the creative team with him for this revival.

Originally built as the Theatre Masque in 1927, this venue has also moonlighted as a film set in the films A Chorus Line, as well as providing the backdrop to the shadowy opening scene in the Academy Award-winning All About Eve. One of the smallest of the Broadway theatres, it was acquired from the Chanin brothers in 1937 by theater impresario John Golden who promptly named it after himself. Built in the Moorish style, this theatre is famed for having a good sightline to the stage from all of its 800 seats.
