>New Free/Cheap Performance Space in NYC

>Quote from the Mo Pitkin’s is closing thread:

“I don’t even want to think about the sterile & fancy new establishment that might take its place.”

Hey, I think this is my cue! So, besides running my own PR company and producing shows, I also serve as the Director of Publicity for Comix. This means I haven’t had much time for going to my favorite NYC shows at places like Mo’s, UCB, Riffifi, the PIT, etc. I miss the shows, the hanging out and small monetary investment.

Comix has a downstairs lounge that we hardly use except when we have a private poker game every now and then. Every time I walk by it I think, “What a waste of space!” So I put together a proposal for how to use the space, pitched it to the GM and got approval today.

I’m going shopping for a curtain to serve as a back drop and a few other asthetic things like that to get the space performance-ready and should have it up and running by the week of October 23rd. Could be a stupid idea and/or total failure but I want to give the old college try because, you know, I have nothing else going on at all.

Drop me an email if you want to discuss the booking details.

Now, what to call it?

    Hello,

    My name is David Delaney and I came across your post in a search for performance spaces in nyc. I hope your endeavor has been going well. I am currently working with a group of recent graduates from Mason Gross School of the Arts on an original devised theatre piece. We have not yet set a date for our performance, but we are aiming for late february early march. I wanted to see if this would be the type of project you may be interested in having in your space. More importantly, I really enjoy the type of project you are undertaking and would love to help or assist in any way. Please feel free to contact me for any further information I can provide you with and if you’d like to talk feel free to call me at 708 642 3871.

    Thanks for your time,

    David Delaney
