About the Theater at the 14th Street Y

In 2017, the Theater lowered our weekly rental by 40%, selecting productions through a submission process. The theater provides a highly reduced rental rate and an agreement that includes subsidized space, marketing consultation and support, technical support, administrative support, a fully staffed box office, and production consultation.

All productions are co-presented by the 14th Street Y and must go through a submission process before being curated into our season.  We are seeking projects with producing companies attached as we are a co-presenter.

For our Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 Season, the Theater at the 14th Street Y is featuring producers in the mediums of Theater, Dance, Film, Music, and Festivals to submit ideas for co-presentations that revolve around the theme of HUMOR.  Projects that explore anything from farce to dark humor are welcomed. Pieces that have elements of social awareness and challenges or speak to the diverse East Village community are highly encouraged to apply.

For 2020 – 2021 productions that are a part of the curated season, rental charges will be $2000/week for exclusive use of the space, and $1000/week if the production runs in rep. Season partners receive 70% of ticket revenue, while the Theater at the 14th Street Y retains 30% of ticket revenue, plus all fees.
