Now called the Playhouse Theatre. When I passed by the other day it was closed (nothing being staged) and the building is up for sale. It seems like it is a multiple use building with the Cafe Wha? restaurant in the basement, a theatre at first floor level and a reheasal space above

A play by David Barth ‘Hard Right’ was being staged at the Players Theatre when I took this photograph in May 2006:

This theater was bought by a new owner who was reportedly pouring millions into it to make a state of the art playhouse/studios complex.

I’ve seen various off-Broadway shows here and never understood why it was so long and narrow. Until I read the above and realized it was a film theater first.

Viva Cinema Treasures!!

I’m the new owner of the Players Theatre who brought the building in September of 2006. Didn’t pour millions in as the posting above suggests but we did do some renovations. I am familiar with the cinema history of the venue and I am interested in bring this back into the theatre schedule. If there’s anyone interested is running such a series they should contact me. Correct phone number for theatre is 212-475-1449. You can also contact me through the website:
