Built in January 2013 with an original design by our artistic director Orietta Crispino, our full floor loft in the Garment District is a flexible space where Theaterlab hosts, presents and produces Theater, Dance and New Media . The signature stark beauty of the white box spaces is a fertile ground for experimental new work. Through TLAB SHARES, our curated rental program, we invite guest artists to produce work at affordable rates. Theaterlab reviews and selects all TLAB SHARES artists based on the Company’s compatibility with Theaterlab’s mission and aesthetic, a proven history of artistically ambitious productions, and a vision for utilizing our white box Theater and Gallery in a way that supports and elevates their work. We believe that being good hosts to artists and audience alike is the best way we can enrich and support New York’s Off-Broadway theater.


Located in a loft in the heart of NYC’s Garment District, Theaterlab offers unique, artsy decor combined with modern amenities and highly flexible setup. Our rental spaces include the white-box theater and the intimate gallery with tons of natural light.
