About the Department

Facilities: Provincetown Playhouse

133 MacDougal Street, NYC

The historic Provincetown Playhouse (88 seats) is credited with launching the careers of Anne Bancroft, Julie Harris and Eugene O'Neill, who premiered many of his early plays at the Provincetown. The Department presents readings, new musical works, and storytelling evenings, among other events and performances in the Playhouse. It is also used a classroom for larger classes.

The theatre, which is run by Steinhardt's programs in vocal performance and educational theatre, has an illustrious place in the history of American drama. Renovations preserved the Playhouse's original brick walls, refurbished the mid- century seat end standards, restored the exterior to its 1940 facade, and updated the 88-seat theatre's seating, lighting and sound controls, and air handling.
