Canal Park Playhouse
508 Canal Street New York, NY 10013 View on Google Maps
We specialize in presenting one and two character plays, subway performers, silent movies and childrenâ€™s entertainment/brunches on weekends at 12 and 2. All this creative energy percolates in a playful, hurly burly atmosphere. Stop by anytime- you never know what youâ€™re gonna get. We offer two venues- The Front Room and The Back Room. The Front Room, with cabaret chairs and tables, seats 35 and has a snack bar with wine and beer. (No wine or beer available or on display during childrenâ€™s matinees). The Back Room is furnished with upholstered theater seats from the legendary Sullivan Street Playhouse, where the Fantasticks ran for longer than any show in New York history. It seats 55, has a proscenium stage with raked seating and 1826 architectural flair. In both rooms we offer an up-close view of New York Cityâ€™s best performers. We are located in our own building- the landmarked 1826 Canal House, adjacent to the recently restored Canal Park- one and one half blocks from the Hudson River. The popcornâ€™s always 2 bucks. And the butterâ€™s real.
