"...This was one of the most incredible theatre spaces and teams I have ever worked with. Our performance just ended and the team was so organized and helpful in cleaning up and asking us what our needs were for the set up and breakdown. So thorough on the tech side..."

Actual performance space bookings

rooftop event for a non-profit group

I am interested in renting the space for a rooftop event for a non-profit group I am associated with. For this particular event, we would be bringing in a drag race star to host and perform. We would have a DJ, provide an open bar to guests, and offer free rapid HIV testing. In addition, we would hope to brand the space with some of our materials. The purpose of the event is to spread the message while providing a fun atmosphere for guests.

performance music video

I'm planning to use your space to shoot a little performance music video. I'm planning on bringing in fog machine and my own lighting equipment and camera equipment. It will only be the artist, me and my camera assistant. Let me know if everything works for you as soon as you can.

music listening and release event

I am looking for a space to throw a listening/release event for my upcoming music project next month. It would also include a few live music performances. There would also be lighting and various art pieces set up and displayed for vibe and aesthetic. What stood out to me with your location was the images of the stage with the three walls of projections. It looked amazing and would be something I would hope to incorporate. But, unless I overlooked, I didn't see any image that showcased the entire look and dimensions of that room. My question: Can you possibly show/send an image of some kind that showcases that area fully?
