Liberty Theater at Union Square
189 Second Avenue Suite 3N
New York, New York 10003
Located at 17th and Park Avenue South is just at the north end of Union Square. Over the years Union Square has exploded in becoming a popular designation area with easy access to subways, wide array of restaurants and shops plus many different entertainment venues. The theatre was once built to hold meetings for Tammany Hall. Though the leftist political wing sold the Building to the Ladies Garment Union before ever taking occupancy of the building, the theatre remained. The Ladies Garnet Union rented out the venue to various theatre companies including the Roundabout Theatre in 1980s and then to another theatre company before Liberty Theatres fully renovated the space adding elegant elements and detail to replicate the look of a small Broadway house.
The theatre is 499 seats (358 in the orchestra and 141 in the balcony), the largest of any Off Broadway theatre downtown yet offers a quaint intimate stage experience for productions. The stage dimensions are 51 feet wide by 25 feet deep( shows have extended) and 24 feet high to the grid.
